"To Teach the Stars" is a weekend workshop focused on how to start and/or enhance astronomy classes in secondary schools and colleges. Dr. Larry Krumenaker, editor of "The Classroom Astronomer" will be the clinician.
The January 28-29 event will be held at the Rainwater Observatory Observatory & Planetariium in central Mississippi and is funded by the Mississippi NASA Space Grant Consortium and is free. Housing and meals will be provided, but participants must provide their own transportation.
The focus of the sessions will be on ways to include astronomy classes in the curriculum and make the classes more exciting and relavant. Sharing of teaching activities and initiating up a network for sharing resources will be a major focus.
