February 11, 2011

Back by popular demand, JPL's Education Office is offering a free introductory-level workshop that will teach the difference between an atom and a molecule and give an overview of the elements.   Attendees will "tour" the solar system and identify predominant elements that compose each planet. The workshop provides the basis for an engaging way to teach the Periodic Table and learn about the planets and moons of our solar system.

The Periodic Table of Elements and the Solar System workshop will be held on Saturday, Mar. 19 from 10 a.m. to noon, at the JPL Educator Resource Center in Pomona, Calif. To sign up, call the Resource Center at 909-397-4420.

This workshop is recommended for third and fifth grade teachers but it is open to all educators.
