Abstract

Although the approach to astronomy education is very different in all the European countries, it nevertheless often shows similar difficulties. The European Association for Astronomy Education (EAAE), according to its statutes, is largely contributing to promoting astronomy education by means of activities on a European scale. Motivation of students and teachers is improved by joint European projects combined with contests and support for the teaching activity is offered through yearly EAAE Summer Schools.
