Stockton Astronomical Society presents

Babs Sepulveda and Chris Rauschenfels:  

NASA SOFIA AIRBORNE ASTRONOMY AMBASSADORS

In this presentation we will talk about NASA’s SOFIA observatory and the Education Ambassadors program. We’ll describe the requirements of the program and the process we had to go through to be selected.

We’ll describe what we learned and our goals for how we’ll bring that back to our classrooms. We’ll also discuss our plans for sharing what we’re doing with other educators and our community.
