Doors open at 6:30 PM. At 7:00 PM we'll begin our lecture from Dr. Nicole Gugliucci, Assistant Professor of Physics at St. Anselm College in Manchester. Dr. Gugliucci seeks to blend teaching and research as we investigate better ways to teach the physical sciences and bring students into research projects from an early stage. Her scientific background is primarily in radio astronomy with a passion for science communication. She is currently part of the Very Large Array Sky Survey Working Group, seeking to create multiple access points for professionals, students, and lay people into what will be a rich astronomical data set. She is also particularly interested in reaching pre- and in-service science teachers with interesting astronomical content and strategies for teaching physical sciences.
At 8:00 PM in the Planetarium, join us for a Tonight's Sky showing. Learn about the constellations, planets, and more visible in the night sky in addition to the spectacular super blue moon that happened on January 31.
Doors close at 9:30 PM.
