Abstract: Conceived in 1993, Project ASTRO is one of the oldest science education programs in the country. Since its inception, Project ASTRO has partnered an estimated 3,200 classroom teachers with perhaps 2,500 volunteer astronomers, reaching up to a half million students! In this panel discussion, find out from current Project ASTRO site leaders about the impact the program has had in their communities, and on their outreach practices. And, how the program has remained relevant after all these years.
