Hands-on Astrophysics is a project which develops and integrates a wide range of science and math skills, through the measurement and analysis of variable stars. It can be used in a variety of settings, from junior high school to university. In this paper, we describe how it can be used in astronomically-developing countries or regions, as a stepping stone to more advanced astronomical activities, and as a model for using processes and databases developed by amateur astronomy as a way of doing useful science at low cost.
