Have you ever wondered how scientists actually use the largest telescopes in the world?
Since 2020, you can actually eavesdrop in real time and interact with scientists while they carry out these scientific observations, thanks to Shadow the Scientist (StS), a UCSC initiative to connect the public to our science!
If you want to learn about this project and maybe become one of the future amateur observers of these 100% authentic scientific research experiences, come to Astronomy on Tap! You will also learn how the StS team strives for open-ended research and teaches scientific methods and critical thinking.”
Free and open to people of all ages!
