Planning your Event
When planning your event, you want to think about the following:
Who is the event for? Who is your targeted audience? Is your event for students in your school or university? Is this an event for the general public? Adults only? School children? Perhaps professional astronomers? Or the researchers within your institution? Maybe government policy makers? What tools or resources would be appropriate to target this audience? Knowing who your audience is will help build a pathway towards what kind of event you will host.
When planning your event, think about who the sponsoring group is. The sponsor could be the group that helps promote your event to their network or any organisational group who is going to give you the necessary help to make the event successful. Essentially, the sponsoring organisation is the group that makes the event happen. It could be an astronomy club, a 4th grade class or museum, for example. (The sponsoring organisation may or may not be the same as the venue.)
The activities which could be part of your event program curriculum are limitless. The mission behind these activities are to create interactive and engaging way to spread knowledge and awareness about asteroid impacts across the globe. To narrow your choice selection, ask yourself: what kind of event do I want to put on? Will it be a night program? Will the event be a few hours long or a few days? Will the program include a speaker(s)? Do you plan to have a series of expert speakers? Or perhaps a panel discussion? Or maybe you are just getting a few friends together to watch asteroid movies? Your program curriculum will serve as the primary content that publicises your event. It will also act as the planned outline for your event.
