Astronomy For Thinkers

Astronomy For Thinkers

I write curriculum and create classroom projects to help teach astronomy. I am also developing customized compass roses, sundials, astrolabes, and other physical items.

I taught science to elementary and middle school students for many years. Along the way, I wrote a great deal of my own material, and designed and developed numerous teaching aids, all with the aim of making science education more about coaching, and less about dogmatic assertion. Now I am attempting to organize, prettify, and publish my best stuff. In the field of astronomy, I created a number of sundials, planispheres, and other makable projects of various kinds. Most of my designs started out as paper handouts, and I make many of these paper creations freely available for kids, parents, and educators on my astronomy website. I am also trying to turn some of these designs into wooden or metal items, and make them available for sale, both for the fun of creation, and in the hopes that sales will help support the growth of my educational website.
