Skip Bird, Outreach Coordinator, WestminsterAstronomical Society & Educator, PARI

Talk Title

Summary

Biography

Wayne “Skip” Bird is a NASA Heliophysics Ambassador, and presently the Outreach Director/Night Sky Network Guru for the Westminster Astronomical Society, an outreach fanatic (definition of fanatic: someone who will not change his mind AND will not change the subject). He is also an Astronomy Educator for the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute (PARI) in NC (When the transporter is working). He is the world-renowned author of “Night Flying Astronomy Bird” articles (OK, maybe world-renowned is being a little modest), and the World’s Greatest Dad — he has the button to prove it, but enough about me.
