Reach for the Stars: Touch, Look, Listen, Learn
Reach for the Stars presents learners with a new approach to astronomy, one that educates and inspires in ways no conventional materials can hope to match. This interactive book helps students explore the fundamentals of astronomy, the latest scientific advances, the tools that make those advances possible, and careers in science. This resource intends to expose all students—including those with visual impairments and other print disabilities—to critical STEM content. This multi-touch book is designed for your iPad and is available for download from iBooks.

astroEDU Activity of the Day!
Sun’s Shadow
Watch shadows during the course of the day to explore the influence of the Sun’s position in the sky on them, as well as how they change over the seasons. During the next season, repeat the experiment and note the changes from the previous season. Repeat over a period of one year for each season.

Space Science Is for Everyone: Creating and Using Accessible Resources in Educational Settings
This is a collection of helpful hints and resources based on seven workshops that offered professional development training and resources for the teachers of students with disabilities, science educators (both formal and informal), and product developers who are working to make Earth and space science concepts more accessible for persons with disabilities. The brochure is a tool for science, technology, engineering and mathematics educators who are working with students with disabilities. Some activity descriptions are supplemented with case study examples addressing a particular disability.

Basics of Astronomy Through Role Play
This is a handbook for science activists and teachers - say authors T. V. Venkateswaran, Anshumala Gupta and follows a Role Play technique to explain astronomical concepts not only to children but also to adults. These enthusiastic and lively sessions, created in the first person, produce lasting impressions on the audiences by promoting the experience of acting and visualizing movements of the celestial bodies.
