The Remote Access Astronomy Project (RAAP) at the University of California, Santa Barbara is a computerized image data base, remotely-operated telescope with CCD camera, and electronic mail system. Students and teachers can download high quality images and curricula for physics, astronomy, chemistry, and earth science courses, as well as exchange ideas and e-mail over the bulletin board. The telescope is now available on a limited basis for remote schools to submit observing requests. The latest addition to our curriculum database includes a cosmology tutorial in which students look for structure in the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation using maps of the CBR and galactic emission.
This project funded by the University of California, NSF, Center for Particle Astrophysics, and NASA.
