Astronomy and Astrophysics Research and Education
North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University
University of North Carolina Chapel Hill
This is a partnership project between North Carolina Agricultural and Technical (NC A&T) State University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH). The goals of the partnership are two-fold: (1) To incorporate UNC-CH’s very successful introductory astronomy curriculum into NC A&T’s existing space science curriculum, and to provide NC A&T’s space science faculty with the training and the tools to carry out these lecture and laboratory courses successfully; and (2) To recruit talented and enthusiastic NC A&T undergraduate students as Research Fellows, who will work with telescopes at professional observatories, engage in astronomical research at both NC A&T and UNC-CH, present their work at conferences, publish their findings in observing reports, conference proceedings, and journal articles, and in doing these things be inspired to pursue graduate studies and/or careers in STEM disciplines.
