Astronomy and Astrophysics for Gifted and Talented, Overachieving, Driven,
Intellectually Curious, Honors Students
Investigate topics in astronomy and learn the physics necessary to make
sense of the universe. The class will meet in the planetarium at
Montgomery College in Takoma Park. A good grasp of algebra and geometry
and a Texas Instruments graphing calculator is required. This course
is designed so that you could start a meaningful science fair project in
space science using real data perhaps collected by a spacecraft or earth
borne observatory. This is a research based course where instead
of learning about science you actually are expected to do science.
Science as a verb not a noun.
Monday, June 22 through Thursday July 2, 1998 at 9am-noon in the
planetarium at Takoma Park.
