Be a visiting astronomer in a local school

Kristin Nelson, Project Astro


Project ASTRO is looking for amateur or professional astronomers who would like to work with teachers and students in 4th - 9th grade classrooms. This is a great opportunity to help kids learn science, sharing your love of astronomy with the most enthusiastic audience you can find.

Astronomer applications are now being accepted for the 2003 - 2004 school year. The deadline is May 9. Space is limited to 25 partnerships. All participants must attend a hands-on training workshop, which will be held August 15 & 16, 2003, at the San Mateo County Office of Education in Redwood City.

More information and astronomer application forms are available from:
