Education / Public Outreach

The members of the E/PO team at MPIA are responsible for presenting the institute and its work in press releases, online, via public events such as lecture series or open days, and at external public events. We also support MPIA staff in the area of education and outreach.

An important part of the institute's outreach concept are MPIA outreach fellows: PhD students at MPIA who show a special aptitude, and are particularly interested in, education and outreach. The fellows are given special training and have the opportunity to gain experience in various areas of E/PO at the institute.

We cooperate closely with Haus der Astronomie, the Center for Astronomy Education and Outreach located on the MPIA campus and administered by MPIA.
