Science Clubs Upgrade

    Science clubs are important gateways for kids to get involved in science. However, most community or regional clubs don’t meet the minimum expectations of kids and parents in terms of communication—a reasonably family-friendly explanation of the club, events, and so on. nSCI is committed to helping clubs across the country develop and share better communication tools. A demonstration project currently being developed is USAtro.org, a website whose goal will be to help improve the communication capacity of astronomy clubs across the country, offering direct links to existing club sites, templates for clubs to create new sites, integrated news and event information by region, age-appropriate explanations about astronomy, and more. In conjunction with this effort, we’re also working with a university observatory to develop a model of a new after-school astronomy education program for grade-school kids. Stay tuned for more information.
