Our NAEC Teams

Each National Astronomy Education Coordinator (NAEC) team is tasked with helping the OAE document and analyze how astronomy is used in teaching in its country or territory, identifing existing relevant actions, organizing professional development for teachers and developing readily accessible and high-quality educational material tailored to the specific needs of the country or territory, and for specific groups and school levels. NAEC teams also provide a link between their national astronomy education community, the OAE and the IAU.
We currently have 421 NAECs representing 123 countries and territories.
Countries or territories listed here without a link do not at the present moment have an official IAU National Astronomy Education Coordinator (NAEC) team. If you are interested in applying for the NAEC position, please see our call for applications or contact
oae​atastro4edu.org for further information.
