[81.03] TEAM Experience in Astronomy

I. H. McGruder (Western Kentucky U.), N. Tyson (Princeton U. Obs.), B. Williams (U. Delaware), K. Hackney, R. Hackney (Western Kentucky U.), M. Rudloff (Greenwood HS), R. Scott (Western Kentucky U.), R. Tyler (Franklin-Simpson HS)

The purpose of the project was to increase minority interest and appreciation of science using astronomy as a tool. This goal was achieved by inviting high school minority students and their teachers to the campus of Western Kentucky University to participate along with minority role models in team based learning experiences. All participants worked together in many hands-on activities and events centered around the exploration of space.
