The Youth for Astronomy and Engineering program is open to students from Maryland, the District of Columbia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Students from as far away as California have even attended! While here, the students have shared their career dreams, asked questions of leading scientists and engineers, and taken part in hands-on activities to explore opportunities in various career disciplines.

A Professional Development Workshop
You are invited to attend the Youth for Astronomy and Engineering Program's Middle School Educators' Workshop on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The workshop will be held at the Space Telescope Science Institute, which is located on the Johns Hopkins University Homewood Campus in Baltimore, MD. The day's activities will include demonstrations of hands-on classroom activities, content presentations, and a visit to the Morris W. Offit Telescope.
Frontier Fields: From the University to the Classroom
The Hubble Space Telescope has pushed humanity's view of the universe back to within 435 million years of the Big Bang, bringing us views of the earliest objects in the cosmos. In the Frontier Fields program, Hubble will reach beyond its technical capabilities into regions of the universe never before witnessed - providing an unprecedented view of the farthest galaxies humanity has ever encountered, and giving us a glimpse of the cosmos to be unveiled by the future James Webb Space Telescope. Join us to learn more about this three-year program and how its science can be applied in the classroom. This workshop will feature an interdisciplinary Deep Fields activity that reinforces science content while addressing mathematical skills such as utilizing sampling techniques to collect real-world, statistical data, identifying methods to reduce bias, and analyzing data to make conjectures about the universe.
Participation in this workshop is $15.00 per person, which includes a continental breakfast and lunch; however, space is limited to the first 35 registrants.
