I've included the blurb from the ASP's website about Project ASTRO:
Project ASTRO™ is a national program that improves the teaching of astronomy and physical science by linking professional and amateur astronomers with local educators. Each astronomer is matched with an educator in a one-on-one partnership and commits to visiting the educator's students at least four times during the school year. Over 500 active educator-astronomer partnerships currently bring the excitement of scientific discovery through astronomy to over 20,000 students annually.
The main focus of Project ASTRO educator-astronomer partnerships is hands-on, inquiry-based activities that put students in the position of acting like scientists - as they come to understand more about the universe (and science in general).
I had known about Project ASTRO from before my internship at the ASP, so it was wonderful to be able to be involved in the training process. While I had more of a hands-off role on Friday, I helped lead a couple of activities on Saturday. I talked a little quickly, but luckily I can practice again at our weekend workshop for the Galileo Teachers Training Program!
Will include photos later!
