Online Workshop Recording: Engaging audiences in the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope - Part 1

Online professional development workshop recording about resources to engage the public in events around the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope (2021).

DESCRIPTION

This workshop was recorded on 05-04-2021

The James Webb Space Telescope (Webb) is NASA’s ambitious scientific endeavor to reveal the hidden universe to our eyes using infrared technology: stars shrouded in clouds of dust, water in the atmospheres of other worlds, and light from the first galaxies ever formed. Scheduled for launch in October 2021, Webb will be the largest, most powerful and complex space telescope ever built and launched into space.

In this online workshop we discussed various resources that you can use to engage the public in celebration of the launch and new discoveries. Members of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI), provided an overview of the science and engineering behind Webb, information about a new opportunity to apply for NASA support for community events (Due May 16), and connections to public engagement activities.


Presenters  

Alexandra Lockwood, Ph.D., Space Telescope Science Institute
