NASA’s Contribution to IYA2009SA’s Contribution to IYA
  • Capitalize on public interest in NASA’s science discoveries and missions to support US IYA goals
  • Convey observation and exploration as an ongoing human endeavor
  • Central website portal with monthly science features that provide a framework for planning
  • Make your own observations
  • Community events
  • Professional development for educators

what s the vision of iya
What’s the VISION of IYA?
  • To help the citizens of the world rediscover their place in the Universe through the day-and night time sky, and thereby engage a personal sense of wonder and discovery.

Why 2009?

  • A global celebration of astronomy and its contributions to society and culture, highlighted by the 400th anniversary of the first use of an astronomical telescope by Galileo.
goals for today
Goals for Today
  • to explore resources that use the contexts of IYA, the 400th anniversary of Galileo's telescope observations, and NASA's Space Science missions to engage student and public audiences in positive science learning experiences
  • to learn strategies for developing awareness, knowledge, and understanding of 3 key astronomy-related science concepts:
    • Earth's place in the universe
    • Tools for learning from light
    • Models, evidence, and the nature of science
  • to inspire participants to commit to a post-workshop action step to integrate at least one take-home insight or resource from the workshop into their own astronomy education practice during IYA
engage observation and exploration of earth s place in the universe is an ongoing human endeavor
Engage! “Observation and exploration of Earth’s place in the universe is an ongoing human endeavor.”
  • With a partner, brainstorm 4 episodes of human astronomical discovery - 1 each from your own lives; and 2 from any of the other 3 categories. What tools or techniques helped make the discovery?
