    About the Site
    Welcome to the Astronomy Education Review ! Our goal is to design a site that makes it easy to find, read about, and use new ideas and resources for teaching and outreach in astronomy and space sciences. On the home page we will list new postings with a date so that you can see immediately what's new since the last time you visited the site. This listing is currently identical with the Table of Contents of the latest issue, but the two will diverge as more material is added to the issue. This site is very much a work in progress. Important features still to be added include printer-friendly reformatting of articles and search tools. In the future, we will provide a mechanism for becoming a registered subscriber so that you can receive a short e-mail newsletter about what's new. If you have suggestions for making the site easier to navigate and use, or for additional features, send them to

    1998 skedde det i Stockholm Astronomi är dessutom ett extremt populärt ämne. Allmänheten är mycket intresserad av ämnen som förmörkelser, meteorskurar och rymdprojekt. Dessutom finns ett stort intresse för astronomi i massmedia. Flera "testprojekt" i skolor har visat att astronomi är det perfekta sättet att entusiasmera och intressera alla elever som annars ofta blir uttråkade av studiet av andra ämnesområden. Genom vårt vitt spridda nätverk av verksamma i astronomiundervisningen i Europa, kan våra medlemmar utbyta erfarenheter internationellt. Lärare och elever uppmuntras att samarbeta med grupper utomlands och att använda våra etablerade kontakter med professionella astronomer. Som medlem kan du också prenumerera på EAAE:s e-postlista, i vilken du kan skicka och läsa cirkulationsbrev som går ut till alla andra prenumeranter.
