Workshop for informal educators 2016

6-24 June 2016



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

Then this workshop is for you!

Our online workshop for informal educators, now in its 6th edition, will be offered from June 6th to 24th 2016. You do not need any special equipment other than a computer with high-speed internet. There will be a weekly 1-hr webinar (online presentation) and we will suggest activities for you to do on your own time. The webinars will be on Tuesdays at 2pm(eastern) - 11am(Pacific) but they are always recorded for those you cannot join us live. You can therefore 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 star finder and planetarium software like Stellarium.
  • be more familiar with many astronomy concepts.
  • have discovered many activities to easily include astronomy in your programming.
  • feel more confident sharing the wonders of the sky with your audience. 
  • and more!
