The Office of Astronomy for Education at the 2024 IAU General Assembly

The Office of Astronomy for Education (OAE) invites you to join us at the XXXII IAU General Assembly in Cape Town on the 6th to the 15th of August, 2023. We will be hosting three sessions with presentations from across our network of National Astronomy Education Coordinators (NAECs) and our Centers and Nodes. We will also be hosting a discussion on teacher training standards and teacher training events. During the second week of the GA you can also join us for a hack day to expand the OAE's growing collection of astronomy education resources in different languages.

During the whole GA you can come to meet us at the OAE at the IAU Offices Booth. If you are wondering where you can find engaging but trustable educational activities to bring in a classroom or you want to share with teachers from all over the world the hands-on experiments you have been using for years with students. Then come and meet the astroEDU team at the IAU Offices booth.
