K-12 Educators

2017 Fall Workshop:
From Pinholes to the Hubble Space Telescope: How Telescopes Work

The ASP serves K-12 educators who work in the classrooms and those who provide professional development (PD) to teachers. We design and organize diverse programs and services to support the teaching of astronomy as the gateway to science literacy: workshops, publications, bibliographies, PD conferences and networking.

Past programs have included Project ASTRO where we pair teachers with astronomers to share the excitement of astronomy in classrooms around the country, our Galileo Teacher Training Program (GTTP), a two-day professional development workshop, and Cosmos in the Classroom for teachers of college-level introductory astronomy including education workshops about the most popular and populated basic science class in universities across the country.

A teacher effects eternity; [s]he can never tell where [her] his influence stops.
Henry Brooks Adams

Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.
