NOAO Educational Outreach Programs for Regional, National and International Arenas
Project ASTRO
Project ASTRO emerged at a time when the decreasing numbers of students interested in science and low scores on standardized science tests suggested that science education in the United States had reached a crisis point. A primary goal of Project ASTRO is to get students interested in science and maintain that interest through fun, hands-on activities that teach important concepts in astronomy. The program developed from a series of weekend workshops on teaching astronomy sponsored by the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. In the basic model, Project ASTRO staff organize an initial workshop for the educators and astronomers to meet, exchange information, and learn about Project ASTRO and its goals. The pairing of educators and astronomers is seen as a true partnership, where each professional brings their unique skills to the project. During the nominal two-day workshop, partners are encouraged to get to know one another and the activities included in the text, "Universe at Your Fingertips," through joint demonstra-tions. This introduction to the material not only helps participants to use the text effectively, but also encourages partners to work together to think about ways they might adapt the activities to their students and their specific skills.

48. American Astronomical Society Teacher Resource Agents Goals
During 19978 academic year, they will serve as agents in their local communities,preparing and presenting workshops on astronomy activities.
Program Description and Goals
The Program
The program involves elementary/secondary school teachers serving as Teacher Resource Agents for the American Astronomical Society in an exciting and rewarding learning experience. As agents, participants play leadership roles in their local areas to promote the teaching of astronomy through hands-on activities. The program has three phases: In the summers of 1994, 1995, and 1996, the participants attended 4-week institutes at one of three national sites. During 1997-8 academic year, they will serve as agents in their local communities, preparing and presenting workshops on astronomy activities. In June 1997, the 1996 participants from all three sites attended the annual national meeting of American Astronomical Society in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, just as the 1995 Agents attended a 1996 meeting in Madison, Wisconsin and the 1994 Agents a 1995 meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. During the summer institutes, participants performed hands-on activities in astronomy, received instruction and practice in workshop preparation, and engaged in astronomy-related experiences unique to each site. These included use of small and/or large telescopes; lecture series; field trips to museums, observatories, and planetaria; and computer-based astronomy laboratories. Activities appropriate for students in grades K-12 were conducted by instructional teams composed of master teachers and professional astronomers. Special emphasis was placed on materials for grades 3-8, the level anticipated to be the most popular and needed. Resources from AASTRA formed the basis of these workshops. Most of these exemplary activities use inexpensive materials. Consultants and guest lecturers interacted with the participants in both the learning environment and social activities.

Improving Introductory Science Teaching for Non-Science Majors: A Hands-On Workshop on Teaching Strategies and Assessment Techniques
Sunday, 2 June, 9:00-11:30am, at the AAS meeting in theAcoma/Zuni room
Organized by: Gina Brissenden, and Mike Zeilik,, and Tim Slater, A Collection of Hands-on Astronomy Activities in Spanish from the Astronomical Society of the Pacific
"El Universo a sus pies"
A 490-page collection of some of the very best astronomy and space science activities, selected by panels of veteran educators, has been translated into Spanish and published by the non-profit Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP).
The 55 ready-to-use classroom activities in the collection are drawn from the Society's own programs and from projects and curricula from around the U.S. and Canada. A number derive from NASA missions and workshops. They include such favorites as "The Reasons for the Seasons", "The Venus Topography Box", "The Toilet Paper Solar System Model", "Inventing an Alien", "Galaxy Sorting", and "Creating Your Own Constellations." The target age range is for students 10 - 15 years old.
Part of Project ASTRO (a program to link volunteer astronomers with local teachers in 13 regional sites around the country), the collection is published in loose-leaf format for easy use in the classroom, and has master handouts for many of the activities. Also included are 13 articles with basic astronomy background information, a non-technical astronomy glossary, and 4 guides to effective astronomy teaching and learning.

strategies address these project goals Offering training to teachers and astronomersin leading ageappropriate hands-on astronomy activities and programs.
A project of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific
Supported by the National Science Foundation
This page is sponsored by: NF/Observatory and Western New Mexico University
With the skies ever-present above us, there is a natural human curiosity to look, contemplate and wonder about the heavens. This giant laboratory above us is available to everyone to explore on a philosophical and aesthetic level. Project ASTRO aims to improve and enhance astronomy education in New Mexico by offering educators support in teaching astronomy. Through Project ASTRO, educators are invited to form a partnership with an astronomer who volunteers to work in their classroom. This partnership will give students an opportunity to do astronomy, while establishing a relationship with a scientist, and further their understanding of the universe. The mission of the Project ASTRO - New Mexico Coalition is to: * financially sustain Project ASTRO activities in New Mexico; * recruit astronomers and identify teachers for future involvement; * establish a community of astronomers and educators who promote astronomy education as an essential part of science education; * expand Project ASTRO services to all New Mexico teachers and astronomers; and * integrate Project ASTRO activities into the mission of their own institutions. Four specific strategies address these project goals:
  • Offering training to teachers and astronomers in leading age-appropriate hands-on astronomy activities and programs.

Teacher Workshops Are you interested in astronomy?
Most likely, your students are too. Do you want to incorporate astronomy into your science curriculum?
Astronomy offers an inviting way into the world and culture of science. Would you prefer a teacher-centered, engaging learning experience?
Passive lectures and slideshows will not dominate your time. You will do the activities with a dual mindset of student and teacher, while learning firsthand the concepts and applications. Fall 2002, Spring and Summer 2003 Workshops
McDonald Observatory offers a unique setting for teacher workshops: the Observatory and Visitors Center in the Davis Mountains of West Texas. Not only will you do inquiry-based activities aligned with science and mathematics TEKS and TAKS, you will practice your new astronomy skills under the Observatory's dark skies, weather permitting. The Observatory is pleased to provide full scholarships to Region 18 teachers, thanks to Joe Parsley of Midland, Texas.

Faculty involved in astronomy activities Womble Prof. Research Activities Infrared Astronomy. Chamberlin Observatory University Park, Denver.
Welcome to the University Observatories
The University of Denver is one of the major, private, doctorate granting institutions between Chicago and the West Coast. Since its founding 130-plus years ago, in 1864, the University has demonstrated the flexibility of its independent status by providing a high-quality liberal arts education while responding to the needs of Denver and the West through an innovative variety of applied and professional programs. While we continue to offer our University as an important resource for the region, we look beyond the Rockies to the world to prepare our students, now drawn from the US and 80 countries, to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The Department of Physics and Astronomy offers undergraduate and graduate instruction in astronomy. We operate two observatories: Chamberlin Observatory near campus, used for undergraduate classes and public outreach, and Mt.Evans Meyer-Womble Observatory located at 14,124 feet above sea level, on Mt.Evans in the Front Range of Colorado, used for infrared astronomy research. A 1991 bequest in the form of the endowed William Herschel Womble chair in Astrophysics has revitalized astronomy at the University.
