AstroEDU is an open-access platform for peer-reviewed science education activities. Founded in 2013 by Pedro Russo and Edward Gomez, today AstroEDU is an open-access  platform supported by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) where educators can find a selection of the best science activities, particularly those with an astronomical, earth or space science focus.

A simple web search for an astronomy education activity will yield many results, yet the quality of, relevance and how current the results are, is unclear.  AstroEDU seeks to address this disparity between quality and quantity of astronomy education activities through the process of peer-review.  Each activity receives a review from a professional educator and professional scientist, to review the educational and scientific content in a constructive manner. The published activities are then published in online repositories, so the activities can achieve the maximum reach.

In 2022 astroEDU has 2 language editions (English and Italian), each with their own editor in chief and editorial board, with a total of more than 80 activities that have been selected and published. The aim of this talk is to encourage the community to create activities or review existing activities to fit into the astroEDU activity template, and to give guidance about reviewing astroEDU activities.
