New Media professional development workshops are two two-day workshops for bloggers, journalists, and people actively involved in telling the world about space science.

These workshops for New Media practitioners and journalists will delve into the fascinating science that MAVEN will unearth.

The first workshop was held in late August 2013; MAVEN launched successfully from Cape Canaveral, Florida on November 18, 2013. The workshop brought new media practitioners to the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, home of the MAVEN Principal Investigator (PI), to engage in a discussion about MAVEN-related science, Mars, and the scientific process itself. The workshop gave participants access to the PI and other MAVEN experts, through lectures and free discussion time.

The second workshop, which will be held in Berkeley, CA, in June 2015, will focus on MAVEN data and discoveries to date, as told through lectures and interaction with MAVEN scientists and experts.
