Bay Area Project ASTRO Teacher Information

Project ASTRO™ Astronomers and Teachers as Partners for Learning

Bay Area Project ASTRO has partnered educators and volunteer astronomers to spark the curiosity and imagination of tens of thousands of Bay Area students since 1994. As we are in our 20th year, we want to make sure we are keeping the program fresh and relevant to the needs of everyone involved.

Bay Area Project ASTRO is taking a year off to assess the needs of both teachers and astronomers in light of new science standards (NGSS) and its emphasis on engaging children in the actual practices of scientists and engineers.

Look for Bay Area Project ASTRO to return in 2016, when a new cohort of educator-astronomer teams will begin their work together in making a difference in the lives of the students.
