Project ASTRO - Connecticut

Project ASTRO brings astronomy into Connecticut classrooms by partnering 3rd-12th grade teachers with amateur or professional astronomers in their area. The project uses an activities-based approach to excite students about astronomy and help them learn the process of science.

Project ASTRO forms partnerships between scientists and teachers. Participants attend a workshop that introduces them to inquiry-based, hands-on astronomy activities and provides them with an opportunity for partnership building and school year planning.

Project ASTRO was developed by the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP) with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and NASA. Project ASTRO is a national network comprised of regional sites throughout the country. Wesleyan University is the lead institution for Project ASTRO - Connecticut.
