John's Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL)

LRO's Mini-RF instrument was designed and built at the John's Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL). APL's Education and Public Outreach team, led by Kerri Beisser, is responsible for the Moon Exploration Student Data Teams program. Through the Moon-ESDT program, students can propose to acquire and analyze data from the Mini-RF instrument. + Go to web site

Adler Planetarium (Adler)

The Moon Wall, a 13' x 6' display that allows the user to fly over the surface of the Moon using high-resolution LROC images, was designed and built at Adler Planetarium with the oversight of Doug Roberts. A miniature version of the Moon Wall is in development and will be available for loan to small museums and science centers beginning in Summer 2011. Demi Brand leads educational team carrying out the development of classroom activities related to lunar exploration, including using LRO data in the classroom. This educational team is also coordinating professional development efforts for LRO at Adler and the greater Chicago area. + Go to web site

Denver Museum of Nature and Science (DMNS)

Gianna Sullivan leads the E/PO effort for the Lyman Alpha Mapping Project (LAMP) instrument at DMNS. With her team, Gianna has developed a docent cart for use at DMNS that highlights how LAMP uses ultraviolet light to see into permanently shadowed craters at the lunar poles. Gianna has also led the DMNS effort for LRO professional development at DMNS. + Go to web site
