AB: A professional development program for supporting student and teacher research in Astronomy has been underway at the National Optical Astronomy Observatory in Tucson for over a decade. The research has involved telescopes on Kitt Peak as well as in space, such as the NASA Spitzer Space Telescope. The program has evolved to reflect best practices in professional development as well as to provide long-term support for teachers. The program has evolved to reflect telescope availability as well as the changing needs of students and teachers. Currently we are reevaluating our methods for professional development for teachers and for their long-term support in doing research projects in the classroom. NOAO is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA), Inc. under cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation.
