Topic: "Communicating the World of Earth Science to NASA's Visitors: A New Gallery for the Public"
About the Event
There's a new exhibit at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center's Visitor Center. The Earth Science Gallery makes use of interactive displays, graphics, and video and audio material to describe Earth system science and NASA's role in the suite of global activities to audiences of all ages. This new exhibit represents a collaborative effort among active Earth Science investigators, space project managers, and professional communicators. Ms. Cindy Howell, Project Manager, and Dr. Mitchell K. Hobish, Consulting Synthesist, will discuss the origin and evolution of the Gallery and take us on a tour. After the tour, Ms. Howell and Dr. Hobish will conduct a questions-and-answers session and solicit feedback and comments about the gallery.
Don't forget your business cards for networking!
