    Title

    Hands-on Space Education and Outreach

    Description

    Hands-on space education and outreach can be a powerful way to introduce and teach Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) concepts, especially with diverse learners. This session will demonstrate and share effective hands-on activities and experiments to explore, teach and reinforce space-related concepts. During the session, presenters will not only present the ideas behind the activity, but also demonstrate it hands-on at the IAC. When submitting abstracts for this symposium, please: ● Clearly identify the hands-on nature of the work presented, and its space connection. ● Provide a short but clear description of the activity or the programme. ● Include some information about the unique, original or innovative nature of your activity or programme. ● Include lessons learned, recommendations or other take away messages in the body of your abstract. If any theories are developed, please include some information about the practical applicability of the information. ● Make sure that the abstract provides a coherent idea or narrative. ● If data has been gathered as part of the work (including evaluations), please include some reference to that in your abstract. Abstracts will be automatically rejected if they do not include a description of the hands-on demonstration that the author plans to conduct during the technical session
