Show a child the universe: become a part of Bay Area Project ASTRO

Hello Bay Area astronomers,

Show a child the universe and inspire the next generation of science
leaders! ASP’s Project ASTRO Partners Volunteer Astronomers with Teachers in
Bay Area Schools & Community Organizations. Please pass this message onto
anyone who may be interested.

Project ASTRO is looking for amateur and professional astronomers to work
with teachers and students in 3rd ­ 9th grade classrooms. This is a great
opportunity to share your love of astronomy with a receptive audience and
help kids learn about science.

Bay Area Project ASTRO pairs you with a local teacher at a school convenient
for you. Together, you and your teacher partner attend a 2-day summer
workshop to learn hands-on, inquiry-based astronomy activities and then you
"adopt" a class for a year. Both partners will receive “The Universe at
Your Fingertips 2.0” -- a rich curriculum resource on DVD-ROM featuring a
host of materials on teaching astronomy you can use in many settings.

Astronomer applications are now being accepted for the 2013 - 2014 school
year. There is no cost, but space is limited. All participants are required
to attend a 2-day workshop held August 2 & 3, 2013, at the San Mateo County
Office of Education in Redwood City. Participants receive The Universe at
Your Fingertips collection of activities and much more.

APPLY ONLINE by MAY 29th:
