As the Public Engagement Networks Supervisor, I manage programs that work to tell NASA's space exploration story in a fun and engaging way - through events, websites and hands-on programs that speak to NASA missions, science and spin offs. The programs I supervise are:
Solar System Ambassadors - a nationwide network of volunteers who run events in their communities that feature NASA mission and science.
Space Place and Climate Kids websites - NASA sites for kids to find answers to the big questions about Earth and space science through interactive games, videos and articles.
Goldstone Apple Valley Radio Telescope (GAVRT) - Partnered with NASA scientists and other observatories from around the world, the GAVRT program allows students to operate a 34 meter (112 foot) radio telescope from their classroom to do citizen science research and exploration.
