Astronomy Outreach To You
13 Aug, 2013. 0 Comments. . Posted By: lncigc

Program Description:

The Cincinnati Observatory welcomes you and your group to take a field trip and experience the wonders of the sky through our historic telescopes. Group visits are offered both during the day and in the evenings and include a tour of the oldest professional observatory in America and the workings of the main scopes and domes. Astronomy presentations of your choice and classroom activities are offered if weather does not permit viewing.

The Cincinnati Observatory provides cutting edge science education. If you can't visit the Observatory we can come to you. Our Outreach Program has delivered hundreds of programs to area schools, scout meetings, libraries, and nursing homes. An astronomer can visit your class, lead fun and in-depth professional development for your teachers, and deliver hands-on, inquiry-based programs that meet academic content standards. We can also bring telescopes for safe viewing of sunspots and solar flares or even lead a star party at your place.

We will work actively to design a program that is right for your class. Program descriptions of our most popular programs are listed on our website.
