An essential component of a healthy scientific enterprise is a scientifically literate and well educated youngster. Astronomy deals with study of heavenly bodies in general. The astronomical community has the potential to add significantly to the continuing effort of improving scientific literacy.
The need for rejuvenation of science and math in our school led to application of astronomy in our CCA curriculum. Astronomical concepts have universal appeal, inspiring wonder and resonating uniquely to inquisitive students. The interdisciplinary nature of astronomy has kindled the interest in our children.
