Astronomy Education Resources

Given that we are so time poor, I have added a couple of pages listing resources on this site according to where they ‘fit’ in the Australian Curriculum (Science). Keep in mind that a number of the activities can be modified for use at different year levels. If you are running a lunchtime science club, I suggest you look at all the pages. Professional development opportunities in the ‘Earth and space sciences’ area for teachers are also listed here.
