Advanced Astronomy is a two semester course dealing with everything inside and outside of our solar system. Semester A deals with the historical aspects of astronomy, the study of light, the Earth-Moon system and the objects within our solar system. Semester B deals with Asteroids, meteoroids and their impact on Earth as well as the formation of stars, galaxies and the universe. While this is a science elective course, it is a college level curriculum with credit offered through UCCS. Information about obtaining college credit will be available on the website at the beginning of the semester. This is an excellent opportunity for students to gain general science credit at the university level and high school credit simultaneously with an additional fee paid to UCCS. Students will be performing several labs and a minimum of three projects throughout the course of the semester.
Join the mission, boldly go where man have gone before, take Advanced Astronomy!
