About the Program

The project is being facilitated by the University of Hawaii Institution for Astronomy along with Koenig's Interstellar Studios as an educational program for the International Year of Astronomy (IYA). The program is done via webcasts and we are looking for astronomers that are interested in volunteering 3 hours to this worthy activity, and want to let teachers know about the availability of this program for their classroom.

The Astronomer in the Classroom Program provide astronomers with the opportunity to interface with school children across North America during the IYA2009. Using Abode® Connect, a web conferencing solution, Interstellar Studios will host three 20-minute webcasts every school day in 2009 starting in mid-April.
