Bring Radio Astronomy to your Students with the Goldstone Apple Valley Radio Telescope (GAVRT) Program. NASA, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the Lewis Center for Educational Research invite all K-12 classroom teachers, school administrators, after-school professionals, and individuals involved in implementing STEM programming at museums and science centers to participate in a GAVRT summer institute at the Lewis Center in Apple Valley. Through GAVRT, students operate a 34-meter radio telescope remotely, collecting data on radio sources including planets, such as Jupiter and Uranus, distant astronomical objects, such as Quasars and pulsars, and the sun. Additional opportunities include partnerships with NASA flight missions and work on GAVRT's SETI Campaign. Students have the opportunity to work with NASA radio astronomy research professionals in planning scientific experiments, conducting observations, and analyzing data.

This exciting institute will train participants in all aspects of the GAVRT Program, including radio astronomy, support curriculum, and antenna operations. The 3-day event will take place June 20-22 at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California with a full day excursion to visit the antennas of the Deep Space Network at the Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex.
