EOS7/G6.4Education and Outreach in Geodesy (co-organized)
|Convener: W. Soehne | Co-Convener: D. Dettmering|
/ Attendance Thu, 26 Apr, 17:30–19:00 / Hall A
This session addresses how we communicate and educate students, the public and governmental agencies about geodesy. Although we welcome all contributions in this topic, we are particularly interested in: (i) the communication (by scientist, engineers, governmental and other agencies, press and other media etc) of geodesy to the public and interested agencies, (ii) the teaching of geodesy to students.
Participants are invited to contribute with oral and poster presentations. We are interested in methods and innovative techniques for education as well as means for outreach activities. Examples for successful application of one or more of the methods and means may be presented as well as results of projects which cover a wide variety of education and outreach activities may be investigated with respect to their usefulness.
