Project Array

A multi-institutional collaboration of radio astronomers and engineers and science education experts engaged in increasing the understanding, awareness and participation of the next generation of STEM learners. The partnership includes AUI University of Arizona – Center for Astronomy Education, University of Colorado – Boulder, University of North Carolina, and West Virginia University. Project Array focuses on increasing the scientific literacy and attitudes of the general public, and inspiring and developing a strong and diverse STEM workforce. In achieving its goal, the team develops college-level active engagement curricula using established methods of discipline-based education research and development. Curricula and resources being developed use the concepts of radio astronomy to engage students in critical thinking, problem solving, and data analysis tasks in the context of a modern scientific field.
