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 or continue 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.
The two instructors for the course are Dr.
Harold Williams and Dr.
Nancy Grace Roman.
Monday, July 16 through Friday, July 27, 2001 at 9am-noon
in the planetarium at Takoma Park.
