A supplemental Leader Guide for Family ASTRO Event Leaders
The activities in this guide can either be used to expand the other kits in the Family ASTRO series, if you need more activities for your events, or you can take activities from it (and our other guides) to arrange your own introduction to the kinds of research astronomers do. Activities include "Star Stages," "The Saturn Project," "Exploring New Worlds," "Is It Alive?", and "Invent an Alien."
Contents: Leader Guide (includes all event handout masters and training videos).
You may also be interested in purchasing the first four kits in the series, which includes Night Sky Adventure, Race to the Planets, Moon Mission and Cosmic Decoders, which are available as Leader Kits and Take-Home games (see recommended products below).
About Family ASTRO
Family ASTRO, a national astronomy education program of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, helps educators of all types share the excitement of exploring our universe. With funding from the National Science Foundation and the help of astronomers, educators, parents, kids, and game designers, we have put together a number of hands-on activities, thought-provoking discussions, and fun games that let everyone get involved in astronomy.
At the heart of Family ASTRO is our series of Leader Kits that allow you to lead many fun and educational Astronomy Events for families, afterschool programs and clubs, and youth groups in your community (e.g, boys' and girls' clubs, Girl and Boy Scouts, park and recreation programs, etc.).
For hands-on Family ASTRO training, educators may be able to attend a workshop at one of our participating Regional Sites. Visit the Family ASTRO web site to see if there is an official location near you: http://www.astrosociety.org/education/family/sites/sites.html
