Astronomy webinar workshop for middle school girls!

Universe: More Than Meets the Eye
Facilitated via Zoom by UC Irvine Astronomer, Astrobiologist, and TED Fellow Professor Aomawa Shields .

This webinar workshop is created for middle-school girls (grades 6-8) from groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences*, this workshop will explore constellations in the night sky, planets in and outside of our solar system, and the unseen mysteries of the universe. We will use writing, visual art, and theater games to process what we learn and discover. Bring your open minds, your own stories, and a sense of adventure!

TEACHERS: Activities in this workshop can be done in your classrooms to complement an existing science curriculum, or as an after-school program. And it’s free of charge (funding provided by the National Science Foundation)! For more information, visit or email Rising Stargirls Outreach and Communications Assistant, Jessica Nicole Howard at <>
