Sharing One Sky II

 "Sharing One Sky II: SDSS, APOGEE, and Astronomy Outreach

Santiago, Chile, July 22-23, 2017


We are pleased to announce the second SDSS/APOGEE Workshop on Outreach and Education, which will take place at the PUC, Santiago, Chile, on July 22-23, 2017.  




The focus of the workshop is astronomy education and public outreach, with a particular focus on sharing strategies and methods, creating cross-cultural and multi-lingual ventures, forming E/PO collaborations, and exploiting the science and international reach of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (APOGEE) — which is operating from parallel sites in the U.S. and Chile — for fostering these activities. We wish to bring together astronomers, educators, and journalists to achieve the above objectives, and also formulate methods by which we can promote the public face of SDSS and APOGEE within Chile, across the Americas and beyond.


The conference will be located in Campus San Joaquin of Universidad Catolica, Santiago, Chile.
