Three PSI educators participated in the Arizona Science Teacher Association’s Terra Luna event held at the Franklin Phonetic School in Prescott, Ariz. 

Maya Bakerman, Sanlyn Buxner and Larry Lebofsky held a Moon-focused workshop for teachers that included meteorite kits, moon mapping, Earth-Moon comparisons, moon phase activities, cratering activities and studying historic images from NASA’s Lunar Orbiter.
