INTRODUCTION

In this website you will find information to teach a UW-level astronomy course in your high school. as part of the UW in the High School (UWHS) program. This website is intended to support science teachers at the high school level who are in, or thinking about joining, the UWHS program.



The UW teaches two introductory courses in astronomy: Astro 101 and Astro 150.

Astro 101 covers all subjects related to stars, galaxies and the universe.



Astro 150 covers all subjects related to the Solar System.



Because these are wide subjects, we provide all the topics that any of our lecturers cover and you, the educator, are free to choose from among them which ones to teach in your classroom.
