Spring 2018 Astronomy Research Seminars
DoubleSTARS™ – the Introductory Seminar
Boyce-Astro will be conducting or supporting the DoubleSTARSTM Astronomy Research Seminars Online and in Classrooms at several locations for the Spring Semester 2018. This is the same seminar that has been conducted for three years in San Diego by BRIEF. You will propose and conduct original research in astrometry as a team member and complete a research paper accepted for publication. You will experience the scientific process from proposal all the way through to publication.
Classes will meet once a week in the afternoon or evening as suits your class/group or school. The seminars held in high schools and community colleges here in San Diego have no additional fee except the normal school tuition.
For those taking the online seminar there is a fee of $99 which covers:
- all course materials
- the robotic telescope time
- access and use of the onl;ine server and suite of software tools
- instruction and support to acceptance of your research paper for publication
Scholarships are available for high school students to cover these expenses.
