Abstract

(Abstract only) With programs like Hands-on Astrophysics, the AAVSO has been active in getting young people interested in astronomy and the night sky. It is wonderful and very important that we do programs like these, especially in these uncertain times when people look beyond themselves to the stars in the hope of finding reason for optimism and hope.
