With the modern scientific age of powerful telescopes, astronomers have peered farther out into space and have uncovered an incredibly fascinating Universe. From our very own unique Solar System to the mysterious quasars, astronomy is an engaging and diverse area of science. This ongoing class is for the astronomy-loving student who wants to learn about our Universe beyond the planets in our Solar System. Each week, an optional handout will be provided where learners can draw and take notes...
For the past 20 years, Alana has taught astronomy to children. She worked at the Angelo State University Planetarium, is part of NASA's Nightsky Network, and regularly provides astronomy outreach opportunities to her community.
An optional note taking page will be provided before each class.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
