    This experience was life changing! It has changed the way I teach everything, not just astronomy.

  • Odden

    This is my third AAS. I understand so much more than I did the first time, but I STILL HAVE SO MUCH TO LEARN! This is a fantastic professional development opportunity, and generates so many ideas each time I come.
