 From kindergarten to college, astronomy is a topic of interest to students of all ages. NEKAAL utilizes resources from NASA, JPL, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, area educators, and years of personal experience. Classroom presentations are coordinated in advance with the teacher to relate to the material being studied. We have used Project Astro, an interdisciplinary teaching resource that uses astronomy as the foundation for lessons in writing, math, music, history and art. From kindergarten to college, astronomy is a topic of interest to students of all ages.
