Education in astronomy occurs in many places, and is not limited to the classrooms of  our schools. We believe that astronomy is the broadest of sciences, covering a spectrum that extends from the observation of our skies to affecting segments in the history of our human civilization.
For those who do not study astronomy, this will seem like an exaggeration.  But it would be enough to just place a small bit of curiosity  into the minds of people regarding this vastly important subject to see how this fascinating science generates a sense of wonder in all people, and thus make us realize that with a small spark any person is able to be encouraged into asking questions, each of which goes deeper and deeper until these questions become philosophical in nature.
In this section of our site we wish to offer several types of pedagogical resources, which range from basic classes in astronomy, to working and striving to understand the urgent problems facing of our civilization which are linked to our natural environment.
