  3. 3. The story.
  4. 4. The explore section. Level 1: Sally helped to make a robot arm. She used the robot arm to find a satellite when it was lost. Level 2: Not only did Sally help to create a special robot arm - she was also the first person to use it when retrieving a satellite. Level 3: Not only did Sally help to create a specialised robot arm; she was also the first person to use it when retrieving a satellite during her first mission.
  5. 5. The future Children in our trial schools are currently working on projects including animations, artwork and non-fiction projects to share in our gallery. The website will have three different display options to make it more suitable for different groups,. Help us write content or translate the site: contact@explorablestory.org

  24. 24. Main alliances with other programs to complement UNAWE Network of Teachers at Venezuela •  Eratóstenes-UNAWE Andean Countrys Project: In which thousands of children across America, as Eratosthenes did 2300 years ago, using the shadow cast by a stick vertically or Gnomon, and basic geometry, calculate the size of the earth •  The Galileoscope Venezuela, through its national UNAWE program, was favored with te donation of 250 Galileoscopes by the IAU, these were donated to schools that have developed activities UNAWE program as a stimulus to its mystique and effort c)  Partnership with the GALILEO Teachers Training Program, in that instance we have realized 7 GTTP Workshops since the 1st realized the 1 and 2 February 2011, in which we scheduled with international coordinators USA (Karl Pennypaker UC Berkeley) and Europe (Rosa Doran, a member of educational commissions UAI) holding the First Video-Workshop GTTP UNAWE with outstanding teachers in Venezuela, the others have been developed at Mérida, Monagas and Caracas
  25. 25. An for 2013-2014 we are developing at UNAWE-Venezuela The School Planetariums Workshop • Build a basic UNAWE-School Planetarium for outreach in science, astronomy and technologies. It include a basic pinhole star projector the possibility of attach a video projector for multimedia shows, and the building a 6m cardboard geodesic dome for 25 children. • Work together with science centers in schools in order to the children with his teachers manage the planetarium • The goal is that each teacher develop a new planetarium at his school, so we hope the development of at least 10 planetariums per workshop, now we have developed 4 workshops, and now there are constructing at least 20 new planetariums •  1st.

Facilitates socialization processes Generates amateur astronomy teachers The  astronomy  as  a   pedagogical  tool   Generates a close functional relationship between teacherstudent It is suitable for Preschool on. Connect different areas of knowledge
  30. 30. Existing repositories: • require login, • are cluttered, • are hard to navigate/find resources, • have content with highly variable quality, • have limited content review, • are restricted in languages, • are not maintained/updated.
  31. 31. What is astroEDU? astroEDU makes the best astronomy activities accessible to educators around the world. astroEDU is the first platform of peer-reviewed astronomy educational activities. astroEDU is a platform for educators to discover, review, distribute, improve, and remix educational astronomy activities.
