Discover the Universe

Discover the Universe (DU) is a program that promotes public outreach in astronomy in partnership with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC) and the Federation des astronomes amateurs du Quebec (FAAQ). It is especially tailored to the training of teachers and animators who are in a position to share their knowledge of astronomy with others. Webinars hosted by DU are an important part of the outreach program.

Discover the Universe is also responsible for organizing visits for the Westar Lecture series whose goal is to provide educational outreach to remote communities. DU is partially funded by CASCA and the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics, and its website can be found here.
