Welcome to the Home Page of the Transition Year Astronomy Module !
A collaboration with Physics teachers, Science Foundation Ireland, and
the Physics Department in UCC has recently launched a new Transition Year
Module in Astronomy. This is designed to last 1-2 terms, and is
based on a series of "hands-on" demos and practicals for the students
to carry out. No prior knowledge of astronomy is required.
Although a pdf version of this module
can be found here
we encourage teachers to use the online version
here . Teachers can navigate through
the Module by using the sidebar. This online version of the Module
contains live links to many useful websites, and purpose-built powerpoint
presentations teachers can use in the classroom.
We warmly welcome feedback on this Module, and encourage teachers to
contact Dr Paul Callanan (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any (hopefully constructive !)
