Do you teach astronomy and wish that you could make it more relevant to your students? This trip is an awesome way to enhance your credibility factor. Return to class with photos of you at major observatories. Entertain your students with stories of people you met, places you went, experiences you had. Bring back astro swag and classroom materials.
Do you like astronomy but wish you had a better understanding of what astronomers study and why it's of interest? Would you like a chance to learn more about telescopes, instruments, spacecraft, or just the night sky? Go behind the scenes to see state of the art instrumentation, and spend time under dark skies to see what's out there.
