UVU PTRA/AAPT Summer Astronomy Course.


Description: PTRA/AAPT/UTSTA Astronomy Course This course will focus on learning and teaching Astronomy.  This week long course will include inquiry style learning with methods to reach and engage students in the study of Astronomy.  Fabulous evening viewing opportunities occur each evening of the course.  This is a field experience with night time viewing.  You will be able to use a telescope to find objects in the sky during this workshop.  Capitol reef is a gorgeous night sky and the UVU field station is amazing.  This PTRA/AAPT/UTSTA Astronomy workshop is much more than a paper pencil class and UVU and PTRA looks forward to hosting you for the week.
