RASC National Society: Robotic Telescope for Classrooms

Robotic Telescope for Classrooms

Introducing the RASC’s newest outreach program, Robotic Telescope for Classrooms! This brand new program gives students and teachers the opportunity to work with real exoplanet transit data collected by the RASC’s robotic telescope. There are two different programs to choose from.

The BASIC PROGRAM:
Designed for Grade 9-12 classrooms. Everything you need to introduce and guide your students through exoplanet transit analysis. No astronomical or exoplanet analysis experience is required! BONUS: your students can participate in a “virtual field trip” to watch transit data be collected in real-time!

The ADVANCED PROGRAM:
Designed for advanced classes, year-end projects, extended essays, and science fair projects with a teacher supervisor. Students collect exoplanet data on the telescope, calibrate, and analyze it from start to finish!
