    Title

    IAF SPACE EDUCATION AND OUTREACH SYMPOSIUM

    Description

    This symposium, organized by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF), explores best practice and innovative approaches to space education at all levels. It also considers activities, methods and techniques for informal education, outreach to the general public and workforce development. Each year the symposium will commence with a key note address by the winner of the IAF Frank J. Malina Astronautics Medal. This award recognizes the outstanding contribution to space education by an educator who promotes the study of astronautics and space science. When submitting abstracts for consideration, please note that: • Papers should have clear education or outreach content. • Emphasis should be placed on evaluating the learning outcomes of a project, and how these learning outcomes were achieved and evaluated. • Authors are encouraged to clearly identify target groups, benefits, lessons-learned, good practice and include measures of critical assessment. • Technical details of projects, even if carried out in an educational context, will not usually qualify. • Papers reporting on programmes/activities that have already taken place will be given preference over papers dealing with concepts and plans for the future. • Papers covering topics/activities which have been reported at a prior IAC must state this explicitly and detail both the additional information to be presented and the added value that this represents.
