Project ASTRO: Individual Involvement for Educators and Astronomers
If you are an educator or astronomer interested in becoming a part of Project ASTRO™, or in using Project ASTRO materials, here are some ways you might get involved with us:
If you live near one of the Project ASTRO National Network Sites, contact the coordinator at your local site to get an application to be a Project ASTRO astronomer or educator. Partner training workshops are usually held in the summer, and if you are a teacher, typically administrative support from your school is required.
If there is no Project ASTRO site near you, but you want to work with a local educator or astronomer to start a partnership similar to what we do in Project ASTRO, you can purchase the Project ASTRO How-to-Manual (which also explains how to find a partner). Also, the books of resources and activities we publish are available to the public (click here to see a list, including information on how to order these items). While using these materials on your own is not as easy as using them after you have attended a Project ASTRO workshop, many astronomers and educators around the country have used our resources to establish successful partnerships on their own.
