Welcome to After School Astronomy Clubs!

If you run an after school astronomy club, you've come to the right place! After School Astronomy Clubs provide students, families, and even whole communities with a unique opportunity to experience the wonders of astronomy outside of the traditional school day. These clubs can provide focused experience beyond the scope of the school curriculum for groups of motivated students.

There are many ASACs for grades K-12 scattered across the country, each with their own focus, approaches, and interests. Through this website, you can become part of an ever growing community of After School Astronomy Clubs and share your ideas, questions, challenges, and approaches with other clubs. This web site is part of a larger effort, supported by NASA, to enhance the teaching of space science and was made possible by a grant from the NASA / STScI IDEAS program.
