Astronomy and Schools

Astronomy and schools drives activities related to using astronomy to inspire the very young and stimulate education, especially in Mathematics and Science.  In particular,  introducing astronomy in schools where there is little or no astronomy, and ensuring that the subject is used to positively influence the level of education development.  Programmes for very young children, in the early childhood development stage, also falls within this field. Examples of activities are educator training workshops; developing classroom resources; astronomy clubs in schools.
