Two Events – Live from the Discovery Channel Telescope!

If you haven’t joined in on any of the Siemens STEM Academy STEM Connect webcasts in the past, now’s the time to join us! We’ve got 2 phenomenal live events planned for the same day, two weeks from now.  Take a look at the events below as well as some resources to help get the word out to your colleagues.

Presented by Jeffrey Hall, 

Director, The Rotunda at Lowell Observatory

A Behind the Scenes Look at the Discovery Channel Telescope
February 26 2013 at 1:00pm EST 

For elementary, middle, and high school classrooms
Bring your students on an exclusive tour behind the $53 million facility that encapsulates the 4.3 meter Discovery Channel Telescope (DCT).  In addition to the breathtaking images that the DCT has captured in its short life, we’ll review the engineering and architectural challenges that were conquered to sustain such an amazing undertaking.  Plus, you will have the opportunity to vote on which part of our Universe we should observe during our live viewing encore presentation at 9pm EST.

Gazing the Nighttime Sky through the Discovery Channel Telescope
Encore Presentation at 9:00pm EST
For families
Grab a warm cup of hot chocolate and gather round to tune into this live web broadcast of the evening sky.  With exclusive access and control of the Discovery Channel Telescope (DCT), Director Jeff Hall and DCT Commissioning Scientist Stephen Levine will be navigating the telescope to the top-voted area from the daytime broadcast. Images will be surreal. Pajamas are optional.

    I’m registered and can’t wait for the telescope events! Wish I could be there live, but this will be great for my students.

    My class was riveted today when they watched your online tour of the telescope. Thank you for opening up those ideas and opportunities for so many.
