NOAO Newsletter - NOAO Educational Outreach - March 2000 - Number 61


Research Based Science Education

Suzanne Jacoby, for NOAO Educational Outreach

The NSF-Funded RBSE Teacher Enhancement program is recruiting for the fourth annual workshop, to be held at NOAO/Tucson and on Kitt Peak during the summer of 2000. Our updated web pages at http://www.noao.edu/outreach/rbse/ contain information about the RBSE program and application materials. If you know of middle or high school science teachers who are interested in bringing authentic astronomical research into their classrooms, please tell them about this program. Astronomers are needed to mentor local teachers who have gone through the RBSE program. Contact Suzanne Jacoby (sjacoby@noao.edu) or Travis Rector (trector@noao.edu) for more information. The application deadline for teachers is March 5th.

RBSE students and teachers already involved in the program attended the Atlanta AAS Meeting and presented a poster paper on the discovery of 73 novae in Andromeda. Coordinates for the novae are now available on-line, as are images, text from the poster paper, and a press release about the work. See http://www.noao.edu/outreach/rbse/nova.html .
