Leverage astronomy knowledge and understanding into your world with CosmoQuest’s Google+ Hangouts On Air.
An instructor of mine once used a pair of hula hoops to demonstrate Venn diagrams. ”Where the two hula hoops overlap” she said, “is where we build understanding.” The Education Team here at Cosmoquest is on a mission to overlap their vast-and-expanding-understanding-of-astronomy hula hoop with your hula hoop. One tool that does that rather well is Google+ Hangouts On Air.
We currently feature three versions of hangouts and also include the video version of the long running and popular Astronomy Cast. You can view our archives or watch the hangouts live on our hangouts viewer.
