First Post

I develop and implement education and outreach programs for NASA Earth and Space science missions. As education and public outreach (EPO) specialists, my team and I are always looking for innovative ways to engage people in NASA missions. We work in the K-12 community, with museums, planetariums,after-school programs, filmmakers and youth groups. Of course our missions have websites and many of our educational activities and products are posted on NASA websites. But lately we have started looking at other venues on the web, like YouTube and Second Life. I have the geosteph channel on YouTube and have uploaded a number of video podcasts and other videos developed for public engagement. I've also created a playlists on Pluto and the New Horizons mission to the Kuiper Belt.

So here I am, a new blogger, looking to share our projects and looking for ways to involve more people in our missions.
