Led by NOAO Educational Outreach, Project ASTRO-Tucson has reached over 13,000 2nd-9th grade students over the last five years by forming ongoing partnerships of teachers and astronomers. To foster and facilitate these partnerships, the Project ASTRO-Tucson website has started to feature resources of interest to teachers and astronomers using Project ASTRO activities.

Initial highlights include video clips showing frame-by-frame impacts of projectiles in flour from the popular Universe at Your Fingertips activity, E-1, "Experimenting with Craters," and more video clips showing the phases of the Moon as seen from the Earth and from outside the Earth-Moon-Sun system; (see Chapter "A" on "Our Moon's Phases and Eclipses" from Universe at Your Fingertips). Ideas for these web pages came from discussions at our 2001 Spring follow-up workshop. Thank you for the suggestions!

Note: The referenced demonstrations require QuickTime, which is available for both the Macintosh and Windows platforms.
