Did you know that the CBE has a locally developed course for teaching high school students all about Astronomy? Henry Wise Wood senior high has successfully offered Astronomy 15 since 2006. Alberta students now have the opportunity to continue their studies into Astronomy 25 and 35. In this session participants will learn about the Astronomy 15/25/35 program of studies. Facilitators will share their experience teaching this high-academic science option, some of their favourite resources (software, textbooks, online resources, PD opportunities, teacher-training) and suggestions of how to start-up the program at your high school. Facilitators will also offer suggestions for a variety of budgets.
