Origins Education Forum

Teach fundamental concepts and the latest science with classroom materials and teacher resources designed to address national education standards. Find out how to partner with a scientist (or amateur astronomer), or see where you can participate in workshops, online courses, research opportunities and summer programs for professional development. Here you can also find sources of funding.

Here are a variety of sites where teachers can find lessons, activities, images and science content background; ask an astronomer a question; and access various handouts and presentation material.
