Sky Rangers workshops, which are part of the Astronomy from the Ground Up (AFGU) program, are designed for educators and interpreters from parks, nature centers, and other informal outdoor and environmental educational facilities.
This 8-week workshop will get you out under the night sky, build your confidence in locating constellations and planets, and give you the tools to interpret the sky for your audiences. Each participant will also receive a free toolkit of materials for a variety of outdoor astronomy activities, plus an additional Our Magnetic Sun toolkit of activities for interpreting the Sun and leading daytime solar observing programs. See eligibility requirements and read what past participants of this workshop have had to say about the experience.
