About the workshop

The 2012 New Media Practitioners Professional Development Workshop brought 17 bloggers, podcasters, and other science communicators to LASP for a two-day intensive workshop with space scientists. The workshop was a collaborative professional development opportunity for attendees to learn about current issues surrounding future exploration of the Moon and other small bodies in our Solar System. The Colorado Center for Lunar Dust and Atmospheric Studies (CCLDAS)  sponsored the event.
