Students in ASTR 410/510 conduct observational projects using the mighty
Great Ohio Telescope. They conceive their own
projects and write observing proposals, then convene as a Time
Allocation Committee (TAC) to review the proposals and schedule
telescope time. Students acquire, reduce, and analyze the data for their
projects, and present the results in written papers and oral presentations
at a mock scientific conference.
