Abstract: The Education and Public Outreach Panel for the 2003-2013 Decadal Survey has generated this report to assist NASA and the planetary sciences community with planning and prioritization of E/PO activities. We recognize the significant achievements of the NASA Office of Space Science (OSS) E/PO efforts in recent years which address many of the issues noted in this report. The key issues identified by the panel are: Communication, Scientist Involvement, Public Relations, Access to Resources, Underrepresented Groups, Leveraging, and Feedback to the Decadal Survey. Recommendations have been made in each of these key areas to enhance E/PO activities through the years 2003-2013. Also included are suggestions for maintaining future capabilities in several areas including Workforce Development and Teacher Training.
