Scientists” at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting,

planning, marketing, recruiting, retention, web site design, data  
entry, data quality control, coordination and management,  
communication between participants and researchers, and project  
evaluation are encouraged as are those that represent the diversity of  
participants including K-12 school groups, informal science centers,  
individuals, communities, universities, and laboratories.
