Monday July 26 - Wednesday July 28, 2011
We invite you to take advantage of this opportunity to learn from astronomers and educators from all around the globe, including your own backyard.
The Yerkes Outreach Teachers are thrilled to welcome the Global Hands-On Universe Project to present workshops for teachers on Monday July 26th, Tuesday July 27th, and Wednesday, July 28th, 2011 at the historic Yerkes Observatory. Hands-On Universe (HOU) is an educational program that enables students to investigate the Universe while applying tools and concepts from science, math, and technology. Global Hands-On Universe joins efforts from all around the world, allowing students and teachers to share their work and experiences. HOU and GHOU now offer greater than ever access to an increasing number of remote telescopes and image processing software.
Please make a donation of $25 for the workshop or $10/day, payable on the day that you attend.
