Workshop for informal educators 2014

May 26 to June 13



Do you work in a park, summer camp or a nature interpretation centre? You would like to become more familiar with the sky in order to organise more astronomy activities with your group?

Then this workshop is for you!

We are pleased to offer our free three-week workshop for informal educators again this year. In the last two years, more than 350 educators and teachers across the country have taken our workshops and can now share their interest for the night sky with confidence and enthusiasm.  

Our workshop for informal educator will be offered from May26th to June 13th 2014 and is entirely online. You do not need any special equipment other than a computer with high-speed internet. There will be a 1-hr weekly webinar (online presentation) and we will suggest activities for you to do on your own time. The webinar is a set time (to be determined) but it is always recorded for those you cannot join us live. Therefore, you can easily fit this workshop in your busy schedule!

 At the end of this workshop, you will:

  • be able to recognize the summer constellations in the sky.
  • know how to use a starfinder and planetarium software like Stellarium.
  • be more familiar with many astronomy concepts.
  • have discovered many activities to easily include astronomy in your programming.
  • and feel more confident sharing the wonders of the sky with your audience. 
  • and more!
And don't forget our programs are all free!
