Journey through the Universe
Program Overview

Figure 1: Results of an Educator Workshop held October 2003 for Washington, DC, 6th grade teachers. These data were obtained from teachers in attendance using pre- and post-workshop questionnaires, and gauge the teachers’ general expectations for professional development workshops (data in blue), and whether the Journey through the Universe workshop met or exceeded those expectations (data in red). This is a typical result, speaking to the caliber of the workshop.

The Journey through the Universe program in Washington, targets 6th graders, their teachers, and their families. The Educator Workshop was held two weeks in advance of the Classroom Visits to all 4,000 6th graders by 36 Visiting Researchers from over a dozen research organizations.
