The Lunar Extreme Program was part of DREAM: The Dynamic Response of the Environment at the Moon. DREAM2 is the next generation of the DREAM team. The DREAM2 Education Team is no longer offering this program. The pages are kept here as an archive of a very successful program, with links to resources that endure.
In spring 2012, DREAM Education Team taught high school students and teachers about the DREAM science science goals in order to prepare them for participation and interaction with DREAM scientists at a Lunar Extreme Workshops (LEW). The first LEW took place at Goddard Space Flight Center from June 20-24, 2011 and focused on how extreme solar storms affect the Moon. The 2012 LEW took place at Ames Research Center from June 18-22. This LEW brought DREAM scientists together with teachers and students (scientists-in-training) to investigate the effects of impacts on the lunar surface at all scales.
The target audience for involvement in the Lunar Extreme Program is high school students who have already been exposed to physics, Earth science, chemistry, computer modeling, or preferably a combination of the above and the teachers of those subjects. Teachers were provided with small stipends for their time and participation.
