Project Spotlight

Enhanced Research Educational Experience

The grant enhanced the research experience and pedalogical value of the optical and infrared observational astronomy courses by taking the students to the observatories in New Mexico and Arizona for a week of extensive hands-on training and observing. Funds provided for students to gain experience in operating and understanding in detail the facilities that they will be using for their thesis research.  In addition, students were able to learn about the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, visit the Steward Observatory, and receive official training to qualify them for future use of the 3.5-m telescope.
