A huge thank you to all of our Summer Institute participants. It was an incredible time getting to know each and everyone of you. It's an honor to have you all a part of the GAVRT family. Below you will find the PowerPoint used during training along with a PDF version for each printing.
UPDATE: Continuing Education Credits (2) will be available through Cal State San Bernardino for your attendance at the Summer Institute. Paperwork will be distributed during the training. Cal State San Bernardino charges $120 for the credits.
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.
