Teaching to teach astronomy
with Low Tech
NASE PG (Network for Astronomy School Education) is a program for post-graduates. The main objective of NASE is to educate new generations of teachers and re-educate the current ones. We work with university professors in order to train future teachers and we cooperate with the departments of education in order to train experienced primary and secondary school teachers. NASE created several courses for training teachers aiming at:
Teaching astronomy to teachers
Teaching teachers how to teach astronomy
At the same time, we work with university professors to introduce them to new methods of teaching astronomy.
The topics of NASE courses are as follows:
- Solar system
- Star evolution
Examples of astronomy in the city and astro-culture are also established.
The main goal is to set up in each country a local group of NASE members who carry on teaching NASE courses every year and create new courses by using NASE materials.
This page includes all materials for NASE courses and a repository of educational materials for astronomy, astrophysics, astrobiology and astro-culture with activities, animations, articles, photos, games, simulations, interactive programs and videos.
