Summer Endorsement/Professional Development Series. Hosted by Utah Science Teaching Association and BYU.

Description: 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.  The Castle Dale area has gorgeous night skies and Emery High School is very gracious to host the event.  This UtSTA Astronomy workshop is much more than a paper pencil class and UtSTA looks forward to hosting you for the week.
