Education Committee Blog

The AAS Education Committee would like to welcome you to our blog, launched in February 2021. Thanks to so many of you in the astronomy education community, there are many materials, programs, resources, and discussion forums for teaching and learning astronomy. Our goal is to create a “value-added” way to highlight education-related activities supported by the AAS and others that may be of interest to AAS members. Blog posts include deeper dives into topics of interest and connect readers with additional resources.

If you wish to receive email notifications about new blog releases, please fill out this form. Your information will be used for the Education Committee blog notifications only.

All articles are also shared via the Education Committee’s Twitter account and as part of the biweekly AAS Digest that all members already get in their inboxes.

We also welcome topic suggestions and other feedback or submissions to contribute an article to the blog.
