THE NEXT CLEA Summer Workshop on Astronomical Research Techniques in the Introductory Laboratory will be held June 17-26, 2010

PROJECT CLEA (Contemporary Laboratory Experiences in Astronomy) announces a Summer 2010 workshop on Astronomical Research Techniques in the Introductory Laboratory. Targeted primarily at faculty who teach undergraduate college astronomy courses and who do not themselves have graduate specialization in astronomy or astrophysics, the workshop will introduce modern techniques of observation and data analysis with an emphasis on the introductory laboratory. Hands-on observing with CCD's as well as an intensive introduction to the CLEA simulations and other computer resources will be featured. Centered at the beautiful Gettysburg College Campus, the week will include workshops on observing techniques, hands-on experience with all CLEA exercises, evening observing sessions at the Gettysburg College Observatory, and an observing trip to the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia. Dates for the workshop are June 17-26, 2010.  Room and board will be provided to the applicants selected. Registration deadline June 1, 2010
