Visions of the Universe - Remote Observing

Saturday, December 10, 2011

10:00 am - 12:00 pm
We love to see the universe as it is viewed through a telescope at night. But how do you get your students to use a telescope when you are in class with them during the daytime or if you live in an area with a lot of light so the sky isn’t very dark? The answer is Remote Observing.

In this workshop you will learn about several different telescopes available online that you and your students can use to take pictures with. This workshop will bring together Internet technology and astronomy in an authentic experience for you and your students.

This session will be in an online conference format so you will need a computer with Internet access to attend the workshop. A phone is also needed for audio communication. When payment is received, you will be sent an email with instructions on how to access the web conference.


Cost for the webinar is $25.00 and registration is required.  Click here for details and registration.
