Abstract: The workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Steve Levin, GAVRT Lead Scientist and Juno Project Scientist, and Lisa Lamb, Educator and Lewis Center CEO. Participants will be introduced to hands-on classroom activities and remotely run a live scan on a radio telescope. Once fully trained, GAVRT teachers join a partnership of professional NASA/JPL scientists, educators and engineers to operate one of two radio telescopes within NASA's Deep Space Network to support student participation in the “real science” experience of working within the international radio astronomy community. GAVRT supports NGSS.
