Lunar Science Institute for Teachers (LRO Workshop–Grades 6-12)

(July 12-16; Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD)

Educators of grades 6-12 are invited to attend a workshop focused on lunar science, exploration, and how our understanding of the Moon has changed since the time of the Apollo missions.  Information sent back by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) and the Lunar CRater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) has revised some of our basic understandings of our closest celestial neighbor.  What we once thought of as a definitively dry world is now understood to have water and not only at its poles!  Workshop participants will learn more about this and other discoveries, explore real LRO data, participate in a number of lunar science activities, and learn how to incorporate these data and activities into their classrooms.
