Educator Resources

Astronomy can sometimes be intimidating to teach. The universe is a pretty big place; where do you start?


Discover the Universe

Discover the Universe is your go-to resource for astronomy teaching. DU hosts workshops and webinars in French and English with up-to-date and engaging information about astronomy teaching. If you are uncomfortable teaching astronomy, check out Discover the Universe first.



Maybe you know a bit about astronomy but want to know more about what to teach in each year, or what your child is learning about at school. Find out who is learning what here.
