Project ASTRO is an exciting program that links professional and amateur astronomers with educators to enhance the teaching of astronomy and increase students' interest in science. Led by NOAO, Project ASTRO-Tucson is recruiting for its fifth annual workshop, which will take place 13-14 October 2000 in Tucson.
A few slots at this workshop are being reserved for astronomers from outside the Tucson area who wish to attend, possibly with a teacher they would like to work with as a Project ASTRO partner. If this interests you, please contact Ginny Beal, Senior Program Coordinator, for details as soon as possible.
Gina Rester-Zodrow and Joni Chancer, authors of Moon Journals: Art, Writing and Inquiry through Focused Nature Study, will facilitate parts of the workshop. The two-day workshop will also include observation on Kitt Peak with the Visitor Center 16" telescope and presentations by Tohono O'odham storyteller Danny Lopez, all within the context of observing and understanding the Moon.
