Badlands Observatory is
currently available to school groups for field trips on a reservation basis.
Eventually, programs on various astronomical subjects may be presented at
Badlands Observatory has recently
developed the capability to allow remote operation of the telescope and camera
system by students from their classrooms. This
unique experience allows them to make observations in real-time by using their
school’s computer to link up to the observatory via the Internet, very similar
to the way the Hubble Space Telescope is operated. Avenues are also being
explored that may allow students to actually participate directly in the
scientific work being conducted at the observatory. Interested parties should
contact Ron Dyvig.
Additional information may be found on the Remote Access page.
