Spring 2016 – Call for Workshop Requests

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Elementary / Middle / High Schools

The Physics and Astronomy Department at UCR announces a call for requests from elementary, middle and high schools for astronomy workshops for Spring 2016.

Workshops have been implemented for a year and over 2,000 students have enjoyed the wonders of the Universe, through talks, interactive activities and telescope viewings. The activities are offered free of charge and given by faculty members, postdoctoral scholars and graduate students of UC Riverside. Workshops are designed following California State Standards for Science. Depending on the workshops and the number of students involved, UC Riverside may be able to partially cover the cost of materials from funding received through an National Science Foundation grant.

Due to constraints workshops are offered only to the Riverside Unified School District as well as adjacent School Districts upon request (San Bernardino, Moreno Valley, Perris, etc.).

    • Run from March 28 until May 27, 2016.
