|Students engaging in deep-sky imaging |
via Insight Observatory
In this way, we can enable them to participate and experience the thrill and excitement of scientific discovery. Students will have the ability to participate in many projects utilizing Insight Observatory that will literally "open their eyes" to the wonders of our universe without having to leave the classroom. All data gathered by the remote robotic telescopes that Insight Observatory utilizes will be easily accessible via the internet to be used within the current science curricula.
Insight Observatory also has the capability of allowing students and the general public to visually observe the cosmos with our partnership with the Kohut-Dingley Observatory located on the Sacred Heart School campus in Kingston, Massachusetts. The observatory houses an 11-inch telescope with a state-of-the-art mounting system that Insight Observatory installed for the school in the summer of 2013.
