The NISE Network runs a series of free online workshops to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, and create more channels for partners to share their work and learn from each other directly.
Online Workshop: The Science Behind the 2020 Explore Science: Earth and Space Toolkit – Using Your Toolkit to Present the Life Cycle of Stars (Part 2)
Tuesday, February 11, 2020; 2 - 3pm Eastern / 11am - 12pm Pacific
Stars have an interesting story to tell—but where can you start with your visitors? This online workshop will cover the science behind two of the 2020 Explore Science: Earth & Space toolkit activities – Star Formation and Nebula Spin Art. After a brief overview of each activity and its resources, our guest content experts will discuss how to use the activities on their own or together to introduce the life cycles of stars and their amazing diversity. Where do stars come from? What happens at the end of their lives? And how does our star—the Sun—compare to others in the universe?
