Astronomy, being an interdisciplinary science having to do with
economics, technology, biology, chemistry, math, and physics, can enhance students'
interest and overcome the educational problems we face daily in the classroom.
Astronomy education, as with education in general, requires an approach from
different aspects. Through it students must come into contact with their natural,
historical, social, and technological environments. Having this in mind, we began to
develop further astronomy education in Greece. According to the natural environment
approach, the study of variable stars is of extreme interest to Greek students.
