Remember, during Solar Week your class can submit a couple of your best questions to the scientists and they will answer on the bulletin board. Click on "Ask a Question" in the left-hand menu.

Update (June 2016): We have just added a new section called Youth Opportunities. This will list some internships and other opportunities for young people. Solar Week scientists have said that one way to increase your chances of becoming a space scientists is to involve yourself in internships and other opportunities as a young person.
Unlike most of the topics of this week, today's other activities center around the students' interaction with the scientists. This is a unique opportunity for your students to get to talk to a woman scientist about what it takes and what it is like to be a female scientist in a predominantly male environment.
In place of activities and games we have provided links to a number of web-sites which provide a wealth of information on the role women have played in the sciences (emphasis on astronomy) and the role they CAN play in science today. Also, check out our solar scientists blog.
