Here is the place where you will find everything you need to get your After School Astronomy Club up and running! There are fifteen sessions included in this syllabus. While these sessions have been developed with the upper elementary school students in mind, they can be adapted to both younger and older audiences.

These sessions include both content and activities that cover the Tools of the Astronomer, the Moon, the Sun, the Sun-Earth Connection, our Solar System, Manned and Unmanned Space Exploration, Stars, Galaxies, and even the Universe! Detailed instructions and activities are also included to enable you to host a "Solar System Conference" to allow your participants to share their findings and enthusiasm with their parents and other community members.

Please contact Dorian Janney at if you have any questions, comments, and/or suggestions for improvements to this section of our website.
