It's A Field Trip!

The Astronomy and Physics classes will be holding their "2017-2018" field trip on March 16-18, 2018. Students will be visiting National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia. Students will tour the facility and get a close look at how these advanced technology instruments function. Groups of students will also use the Observatory's 40-foot diameter radio telescope to make radio scans of deep space objects.
