Commission C1 WG Network for Astronomy School Education (NASE)


The main objective of NASE is to educate new generations of teachers and re-educate the current ones. NASE works with university professors in order to train future teachers and cooperates with the departments of education in order to train experienced primary and secondary school teachers. NASE created a basic course for training teachers aiming at:


• teaching astronomy to teachers


• teaching teachers how to teach astronomy.


At the same time, NASE works with university professors to introduce them to new methods of teaching astronomy.


In the past period 2012-2015, NASE performed 48 courses in almost all the continents, and since the creation in 2010, 70 courses were developed. Division C Commission C1 WG Network for Astronomy School Education map
