Community: Families, Scientists
I developed this program with a close friend of mine who is now dedicated to enabling STEM education across the globe and the American Geophysical Union. We wanted to somehow share the wealth of experiences of the thousands of scientists traveling to the conference with the local communities.
Exploration Station provided a venue where scientists could share their passion and love for STEM with local communities through interactive exhibits. Visitors were able to explore the latest in Earth and Space science and technology while speaking with scientist role models
As this proved to be highly popular and motivating for both the local communities and scientists, we created a similar program called AstroZone for the Solar Physics Division of the American Astronomical Society. Both programs are now fully integrated into the organizations themselves are still run at each of their meetings held in various cities throughout the US.
