The Education and Public Outreach (EPO) programs for the LSST are as ambitious as the telescope itself. The program, as presented at the November 2016 LSST Operations Planning Review, is described in the EPO Design document.
The LSST Education and Public Outreach (EPO) department is preparing to leverage the visibility and scope of the LSST survey by creating powerful tools and effective programs for education and outreach. The EPO program seeks to reach a diverse audience and encourage deepening engagement with the data products, involving the public in the research process to share and participate in science discovery. The system design synthesizes U.S. and Chilean national education priorities, audience needs, and LSST science goals to address STEM education and science literacy within the engaging context of astronomy.
