Teachers will learn the basics of observational astronomy, outside at night, how to use a telescope, how to find constellations in the sky, hear star stories to share with their students and also learn how to bring the concepts of the scale of the solar system, reason for the seasons, moon phases and eclipses as well as why the north star changes to their students in a kinesthetic/tactile and engaging way.

Please register for this session during the conference at the Check-in and Information area in the JBWS Lobby.
