Discover the Universe

Discover the Universe and the Dunlap Institute are partners in offering and developing free training and resources to educators teaching astronomy across the country. Resources are constantly in development, providing teachers with guidelines and tools for bringing astronomy into their classrooms. Downloadable content, videos, and live presentations allow teachers to engage in their preferred way.

All the content is designed to help educators at different levels understand and teach a variety of topics in astronomy—from the Sun, the Solar System, eclipses, and celestial objects to more advanced topics like gravitational waves.

Discover the Universe was launched in 2011 by professional and amateur astronomers across Canada as a legacy program of the International Year of Astronomy in 2009.

Discover the Universe is also supported by the Canadian Astronomical Society and the Centre for Research in Astrophysics of Quebec.
