In 2014, the Student Astronomy Club of the Affiliated High School of Peking University began to systematically organize students of all grades to carry out volunteer services in the Beijing Planetarium. In this process, the school's astronomy teacher cooperated with the exhibition and education team of the Beijing Planetarium, and with the help of the professional interpretation team, the astronomy education and volunteer services were creatively integrated.
In the past five years, more than 70 volunteers have been trained to explain the popular science of astronomy, and 4 of them entered the university to continue their studies in astronomy or physics. Many other graduates also continued to participate in the volunteer service of astronomy explanations during their university studies.


Liu Yang is a mathematics teacher in the Affiliated High School of Peking University. In 2013, he began to guide the school students’ astronomy club activities part-time. In recent years, he has guided students to win many awards in the CNAO. His research interests include Hybrid Learning of astonomy education in middle school and metacognitive learning of astronomy.
