In addition to teaching undergraduate and graduate students at the Polytechnic University College, the X-ray Astronomy Group which belongs to the Astronomy and Astrophysics research Group has an Education and Public Outreach program that addresses astronomy and science education for the general public, families, and high school and undergraduates students.

As an example of our outreach activities, we organised different talks for the general public, a program of which can be read here.

The Astronomy research group offers an introductory astronomy seminar for adults above 50 years old who are interested in learning about astronomy but do not need formal credit. The course is offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the University of Alicante. Registration is through the Permanent University of the University of Alicante. Weather permitting, participants in the course will visit the Busot Observatory in addition to lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on activities.
