We also want to invite undergraduate students attending the Long Beach AAS Meeting to several different events.

First of all, you absolutely should attend the Undergraduate Orientation Reception (Sunday, 4 Jan.; 6:00-7:00; Hyatt Pacific)--it's free, there's food, Jake and I will introduce you to all the bigwigs. Following that is the Opening Reception (don't know the room)--it's free, there's more free food (and it's fancier), if you're 21 or over, you can buy cocktails (or get your advisor to), and meet a bunch more people.

If you're interested in astronomy education, the meeting if full of stuff that will inform and entertain you--like teaching workshops, AstroZone, oral, and poster sessions, and a couple informal gatherings: the Astronomy Teaching & Learning Reception (Monday, 5 Jan.; 6:30-7:30; Hyatt Harbor)--more free food--and the Research Brownbag Lunch session (Wednesday, 7 Jan.; 12:45-1:45; Hyatt Shoreline B)--no free food this time cuz' brownbag means bring your lunch with you--but you'll learn about the interesting work that people doing astronomy education research are involved in.

We hope to see you there,
Gina & Jake
