Sunday Morning: "The Heliophysics Educator Ambassador (HEA) program for Informal Educators" @ Main Yurt | Circleville | West Virginia | United States

Wayne “Skip” Bird, Outreach Director, Westminster Astronomical Society, Inc.
Official: The Heliophysics Educator Ambassador (HEA) program for Informal Educators is a NASA-funded program that will focus on in-depth learning experiences around Earth, Space, and Physical Science topics for educators working with informal audiences and formal K-12 educators. The goal of the IHEA program is to develop the capacity and provide the opportunity for informal educators to train other formal and informal educators on NASA Heliophysics science and educational resources.

Unofficial: Come Join Skip Bird to find out what a Heliophysics Educator Ambassador is, where they work, how you can become one too, and when the world will end (just checking to see if your still reading). I will give a short (OK maybe a little longer than short, OK, OK, a lot longer than short) talk about the HEA program, some samples of activities, and how this program can help our club bring in and keep younger members.
