In light of the impact of COVID-19 on all of our communities, NISE Network partners were forced to re-imagine and create new ways to engage their audiences in Earth and space programming using the Explore Science: Earth and Space toolkit activities. While some have quickly transitioned to virtual programming, re-kitting and distributing hands-on kits to their virtual participants, others have attempted to hold in-person physically distanced programming and guided tours or moved all of their programming outdoors. During this online workshop, partners share some of the valuable lessons learned from a physically distanced summer of Earth and space public engagement and how we're all gearing up for a continuation into the fall. Online workshop was recorded 9-15-2020.
