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
Dr. Nancy Grace Roman
Monday, July 15 through Friday, July 26, 2002 at 9am-noon in
the planetarium at Takoma Park.
