About Educators’ Zone

We all share a natural curiosity about the world, and educators love to tap into that curiosity, letting it lead the way to new experiences and exciting discoveries! Educators of all kinds are an integral part of the CosmoQuest Community, and whether you are a K-12 teacher, a scout leader, a museum docent, a graduate student, an astronomy club member, a parent, or all of the above (eek!), the CosmoQuest Educator Zone is the place to find engaging and easy-to-use astronomy education resources. Our education team is working hard to gather (and when needed, create) the best teaching tools, lessons, and ideas for sharing astronomy with others and showcase them on this site. Here you’ll find instructional units, activities for outreach, links to teaching resources, opportunities for professional development, and a calendar of events where you may get to meet us in person! Who are we? We are CosmoQuest. We love to share astronomy… and we hope you’ll join us.
