Needs

An optical telescope was purchased with earlier grant funding and is now housed at the school; however additional funding is required to train teachers and community partners and to pay for books software and field trip expenses to utilize and benefit from the equipment.

Solution

By providing training and materials to teachers and students along with practical hands on experience and field trips to related installations the students and teachers will be able to use the existing on site equipment.

Resources

Volunteers with related field experience will cover approximately half of the costs required to complete the project. Additional funding is required to pay the majority of the material costs of the project. Green Bank National Radio Astronomy Observatory staff will provide teachers parents and community partners with multi faceted training. The first phase of staff development will prepare participants to fully utilize the existing optical telescope at Petersburg Elementary School.

Secondly STARLAB training will be the focus of attention so that our students can utilize the STARLAB during school hours. In this way we can ensure that all students will have the opportunity to explore the vast expanse of our universe in an exciting and meaningful manner. Finally Hands On Universe training will be provided to interested teachers throughout our county.

Software necessary to support trained teachers will be purchased as part of this project. James Goodman and Arthur Madson prominent members of the community who have volunteered their time and expertise to support this project have both agreed to come into the classroom and provide astronomy related hands on activities and to assist with the astronomy club. Julie Colaw math science technology instructor and Project RIGHT2 coordinator will provide technical support and assistance to all staff in utilizing the STARLAB telescope and computer software. Julie Colaw will also serve as the teacher supervisor for the astronomy club.

A star party will be held as kick off activity to encourage participation in the astronomy club.

Learning stations including the STARLAB and the optical telescope will be staffed and available for exploration. Year long activities will include.

Use of Hands On Universe software by trained teachers. Documentation of Reach for the Stars activities. Media coverage of classroom and school wide activities. Presentations to Grant County Board of Education by students.

Evaluation of Reach for the Stars success will be tri fold. The first component of this evaluation will be the completion of planned professional development activities. After training teachers will be able to utilize the STARLAB Hands On Universe Curriculum and telescope. Each teacher who participates in this project will document classroom activities using the digital camera video camera or media coverage.

This documentation will be compiled and presented at the WVTEAMS conference and at state level science conferences.

Through this project we will increase parental involvement and provide extended learning opportunities for students. The facilitator will log participation in after school activities by students parents and community partners. The third aspect of evaluation will occur by an examination of standardized test scores of 3rd –6th grade students for the school year.
