If you include Earth’s Moon in your interpretation and environmental education or have wanted to but aren’t sure where to begin, you may want to attend this webinar!
This free 2-hour webinar will be held Thursday March 27 at noon Pacific/1:00 Mountain/2:00 Central/3:00 Eastern Time.
It is sponsored by Earth to Sky in partnership with the Lunar and Planetary Institute and NASA’s Lunar Science Institute.
These Partners have worked with informal educators to develop a set of materials and hands-on activities designed for use with youth ages 8-13, and their families.
