Institute for Student Astronomical Research


InStAR’s mission is to develop, conduct, and promote the adoption of the Astronomy Research Seminar, which is an immersive, student team-based astronomical research experience for high school, 2-year community college, and 4-year university students. InStAR also serves as a central coordination site and resource, primarily through its web site, for student research teams in the U.S. to obtain resources, talk with other research groups, and to be a part of a growing community of practice.
