Educational Links
What follows is a list of resources that excel in astronomy education. Each resource is distinctly different - they have been chosen to highlight a wide range of interests. We believe the list is topologically complete in that there are no publicly advertised astronomy resources on the WWW that cannot be found by following the internal links of these resources. The list is in alphabetical order, and is subject to change as the WWW, and our knowledge of it, matures.
APOD in the Classroom
How Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) is being used as a learning tool by teachers and students.

Return to IfA As NASA Administrator Dan Goldin has noted, young students are especially interested in three things: ghosts, dinosaurs, and space. stronomy is a unique field in that it evokes a fundamental interest in exploration and the search for our origins which has long been rooted in humankinds curiosity - perhaps more so than in any other field. This public appeal, combined with the general interdisciplinary nature of the field gives it a high potential as an educational avenue for increasing scientific awareness. We need to capitalize on the interest in space to develop and encourage a continuing understanding and curiosity about space-related issues.

    Welcome to EAAE!
    The purpose of EAAE is to improve and promote astronomical education at all levels in all institutions involved in teaching astronomy in Europe. The Venus Transit 2004 ... Exoplanets and the Size of the World! On June 8, 2004, Venus will pass in front of the Sun as seen from the Earth. This very rare event (no living person has ever seen one!) lasts about 6 hours and will be visible from most of Europe, Africa and Asia. It will most certainly generate unprecedented attention from the media and the public, not just in these areas, but all over the world. Join now! The VT-2004 programme is supported by the European Commission in the frame of the European Science Week 2004.
