A description of last months webinar with the Solar System Ambassador's follows:
For more than 16 years, Solar System Ambassadors have been communicating the excitement of NASA’s space exploration missions and information about recent discoveries to people in their communities. These enthusiastic volunteers seek out a variety of local venues for their programs, with one of their favorites being libraries. Over the years, Ambassadors have conducted 1,697 events at libraries across the country, reaching 132,163 people directly.
There are currently 702 Ambassadors in all 50 states, Washington DC, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands and Guam. Kay Ferrari, Solar System Ambassador Coordinator, will share how these volunteers can support your library’s STEAM activities and where you can find your closest NASA volunteer.
Also joining the conversation will be Margaret S. Race, Ph.D, a trained ecologist and astrobiologist working on astrobiology and planetary protection at the SETI institute. She is a longtime JPL Solar System Ambassador, and has served on the Board of Trustees at the Lafayette Library and Learning Center in the SF Bay Area.
