Ms. Stefaniak finished a long day of four back to back workshops at the NJ Science Teacher's Convention during the first week of October. She started with multiple wavelength astronomy and finished with infrared. Both workshops were well attended and the video with Dr. Thaller explaining IR was a huge hit. Everyone wanted a copy. Ms. Stefaniak took digital images of some of the activities for possible use as illustrations for the group's EPO poster. There was also an astronomy teacher attending the IR workshop who was extremely interested in knowing how to become one of the next generation Spitzer teachers.
Ms. Stefaniak is scheduled for a summer course on the Invisible Universe starting July 19. She is also planning several workshops in October for her state science convention including on October 6:
Teaching Multiwave Astronomy 8:30-9:30
DASLed by the Sun 10-11
Infrared Astronomy 2-3:30
Ms. Stefaniak has an infrared workshop planned for summer and autumn 2005.
She also has another non-IR-specific astronomy workshop summer 2005.
The programs will run on July 18 and 19 at Allentown High School from 9 am - 2 pm.
The first program is Solar Research in the Science Classroom and the second is The Invisible Universe.
Shortened versions of both programs will also be presented October 5 and 6 at the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, NJ.
