Abstract
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.
