Our Education Activities

Our team trains GSUSA leaders to understand the basic science themes to be investigated by JWST and NIRCam: The origin of the Universe including its galaxies, stars, and planetary systems. Since each of these science themes involves several levels of abstraction and relies on elementary principles in astronomy and physics, a major part of our effort engages leaders in basic principles of science, astronomy, and discovering the night sky so they can relate these science themes to the girls in their troops back home. Our educational activities are designed with specific learning outcomes and to follow national science standards.
