My NSTA / Peers / Andrew Fraknoi

I retired from full-time college teaching in 2017 and now teach non-credit classes for retired people at the University of San Francisco and San Francisco State. I am the co-author (with Dennis Schatz) on two NSTA Press books, "When the Sun Goes Dark" and "Solar Science" and am the lead author on the free, on-line OpenStax Astronomy textbook, which is used in 1300 high schools and colleges around the country: https://openstax.org/details/books/astronomy-2e I received NSTA's Faraday Award in 2013 and was the California Professor of the Year in 2007. The International Astronomical Union named Asteroid 4859 Asteroid Fraknoi to recognize my contributions to the public understanding of science. For more about my work, see: http://www.fraknoi.com
