Participants will learn basic astronomy principles as well as how to use the Starlab and Stellarium software to make
teaching those basic principles more interesting.
This year we will be issuing certifcates of completion of the class. (check with your district for details on how to
use these certificates for recertification credit) Next year we hope to have electronic badges available, for
