What is Project ASTRO?
Project ASTRO is a National Program which creates long-term partnerships
between astronomers and teachers or youth group and community
leaders. The philosophy behind Project ASTRO is that students
learn best when using hands-on inquiry-based activities in combination
with a constructivist approach to teaching. The astronomer is
a resource for the teacher both in and outside the classroom and
provides students with the unique opportunity to have long-term
interactions with a scientist. Project ASTRO NOVA has trained
over 275 teachers and over 140 astronomers and reached over 75,000
New Jersey students.
and Astronomers attend a two-day Training Workshop at Raritan Valley
Community College. This year's training is scheduled for Friday/Saturday,
February 15/16, 2013. The two full
days are filled with fun and easy-to-do activities, ideas for working
with your partner, school year planning, and lots of resources.
