The IDEAS Team, made up of the North Carolina, South Carolina and North Dakota Space Grant consortia, facilitated a workshop at the University of North Dakota for instructors to discuss ways to make space science more accessible to students. Teachers came from across the country to participate in this week-long Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) Space Science Educators Workshop.
