[15.03] Project ASTRO - Tucson

C.E. Walker, S.H. Jacoby (NOAO Educational Outreach)

Led by NOAO Educational Outreach, Project ASTRO-Tucson has reached nearly 14,000 2nd - 9th grade students over the last six years by forming ongoing partnerships of teachers and astronomers.

To foster and facilitate these partnerships, the Project ASTRO-Tucson website now features activities and resources of interest to astronomers and teachers. Highlights include a video showing frame by frame impact of projectiles in flour from the popular ``Universe at Your Fingertips’’ activity, ``Experimenting with Craters’’, and a forum for discussing the integration of astronomy, inquiry, writing and art within the framework of Moon Journals.

This work is funded by the National Science Foundation and NASA IDEAS Grant #ED-90207.01-99A,
