I finally had a chance to check out my friend Aomawa Shields‘ newly-released teaching and activity handbook for her project Rising Star Girls. Poetically subtitled “stars shine in many colors”, Rising Star Girls seeks to encourage middle-school girls from all backgrounds to explore the universe through creative, hands-on activities at the intersection of art and astronomy. The Rising Star Girls activity handbook is full of great activities, which can comprise an entire program, or be integrated into existing curricula (or even as fun activities to do at home!). It’s a really awesome resource, and no surprise that it comes from Aomawa– a PhD astrobiologist with a background in theater, as well as a creative approach to both science, and life in general. Enjoy!
