Since organizing a Solar Eclipse Event in August 2017 with over 2000 members of the public in attendance, speaker Emilie Lafleche continues to actively seek ways to reach younger audiences with her passion for space. After an opportunity to host an astronomy-themed workshop for the Girl Guides of Canada, she and her peer, Sam Henle, founded Stars and Stuff, a workshop-centric, non-profit organization with the goal of making space education fun and accessible for all youth, as well as to open doors for enthusiastic young students within the space industry. During this talk, participants will learn tips on how to share their love for space with others, and experience what this up-and-coming, student-led organization has to offer the next generation of stargazers.
