Selected Candidates

Background

The main objective of Network for Astronomy School Education Program or NASE PG is to educate new generations of teachers and re-educate the current ones. NASE team works with university professors in order to train future teachers and we cooperate 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:

 

1) teaching astronomy to teachers

2) teaching teachers how to teach astronomy

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

 

The topics of “the basic NASE course” are as follows: position astronomy, solar system, exoplanets, spectrography, photometry, spectroscopy, determination of absolute magnitudes, potency of stars, nucleosynthesis, star evolution and cosmology.

 

The main goal of NASE PG is to set up in each country a local group of NASE members who carry on teaching “the basic NASE course” every year and create new courses by using NASE materials.
