Joseph Martinez is an avid amateur astronomer and STEM educator who bridges these subjects through workshops, lectures and observation events with an emphasis on robotic space exploration. Through his astronomy outreach program, he is able to engage with the public and partner with various organizations to develop age appropriate astronomy curriculum as well as help expand the resources of their astronomy related programming.
When he is not performing sidewalk and subway astronomy or giving lectures on various astronomy topics, you can find him hosting his astronomy education public access television segment, further expanding the reach of his influence in helping others cultivate an interest in learning, an aptitude for questioning and a chance to learn about the universe.
