Abstract: Recognizing the potential of exciting the public and youngsters with the discoveries made by its space science missions and basic research, NASA has developed a vibrant Education and Public Outreach (EPO) program. In preparation for the International Year of Astronomy (IYA) 2009, NASA is leveraging off its EPO efforts to prepare a menu of activities, aligned with the U.S. IYA themes, for greater public involvement. This talk will outline the NASA IYA website currently under development, a calendar of events, and a sample of the kind of activities the public can be involved with.
