About

The International Astronomical Search Collaboration (IASC) requests 225 hours on the LCO 0.4-m telescope network. During a 12-month time period, these hours will be distributed in 90-minute allotments to 150 teachers from all over the world. These teachers will interact in the classroom with ~1100 students, ranging age-wise from middle school to high school.

The teachers will be trained to use the LCO 0.4-m network in their classrooms. Training will include use of Aladin and SalsaJ for image processing of deep sky objects, and Stellarium as a desktop planetarium tool.
