Present Status of Astronomical Education Using the Internet and PC in Germany
In 1998 the Hands on Universe project was started in Germany. Teachers from 23 schools in Bavaria attended the first Hands on Universe workshop held at the Maria Theresia Gymnasium in Munich. The workshop was organized
and held by scientists from the 'Sonderforschungsbereich Astro-Teilchen-Physik' (Center for Astro-Particle-Pysics) an organization which combines research from the two universities at Munich and several Max-Planck-Institutes. We hope this workshop is the beginning of a collaboration of schools and research institutions in astronomical and scientific education. The internet is the tool for the communication and the exchange of data.
