Division C Education, Outreach and Heritage

Scientific Objectives

Members of Division C are involved in all aspects of Education, Outreach and Heritage. Individuals from other Divisions whose work straddles the boundaries between their scientific interest and Division C may propose Working Groups within Division C. Education ranges from primary to tertiary level including both formal and informal education and is informed by astronomy education research.  Outreach reaches the public through a wide range of media.  Heritage includes the legacy of astronomical artifacts and structures as well as the astronomical attributes of mandkind's cultural history.  The activities of Division C will be coordinated with those of the IAU Office of Astronomy for Development (OAD) and the IAU Office of Astronomy Outreach (OAO).
