Astronomy from the Ground Up (AFGU) is a program from the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP), developed to provide informal science educators at science centers, nature centers, museums, and other informal education venues with new and innovative ways to communicate astronomy content to their visitors. The ASP provides professional development workshops, education materials, and an active community website to enhance these efforts.
Professional Development Workshops Educators can join the AFGU community by participating in one of our many workshops, which take place both as online distance learning workshops, and as in-person workshops at museums, parks, and professional conferences. Astronomy Education Materials AFGU participants receive toolkits of materials and have access to a rich library of hands-on activities and other resources through the AFGU website.
AFGU is a growing community of more than 600 educators and interpreters from museums, science centers, nature centers, and parks around the U.S. who are actively enhancing and expanding their capacity to address astronomy topics for their visitors. The AFGU website provides a forum for participants to exchange ideas and resources and to experience continued learning opportunities from the ASP and other experts in astronomy, space science, and science education.
