NASA Space Science Workshop: Explore! Jupiter's Family Secrets
Grand Island, Nebraska
February 16-17, 2011

Explore! Jupiter’s Family Secrets will acquaint you with Jupiter and NASA’s upcoming Juno mission to discover clues about our solar system’s common history. Scientists and educators from NASA and the Lunar and Planetary Institute will share space science information, resources, hands-on activities, and demonstrations developed specifically for you to infuse into your programs with youth ages 9 to 13 and their families.

The workshop is free. A $200 stipend is available for 20 participants to offset travel costs for those traveling from beyond a 50-mile radius of the workshop location. A stipend request form will be emailed to participants on a first-come-first-accepted basis.
