[54.06] Did You See the Moon Last Night? - Scientific Inquiry through Writing, Art, and Observation

S.H. Jacoby, G.L. Beal (NOAO)

Led by NOAO Educational Outreach, the Project ASTRO-Tucson site has joined with authors Joni Chancer and Gina Rester-Zodrow to develop a workshop exploring the integration of astronomy, inquiry, writing and art. This interdisciplinary workshop is intended for teachers in grades 2-9 and astronomers who work with them as Project ASTRO volunteer partners. Teachers and astronomers learn to guide their students through a month of lunar observations and explore questions that arise through writing, art, and scientific inquiry. This work is funded by the National Science Foundation and NASA IDEAS Grants Program.
