The Faulkes Telescope Project: bringing the universe in to the classroom Dr Paul Roche, Cardiff University https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/people/view/913830-roche-paul https://twitter.com/spaceambassador?lang=en This workshop demonstrated how schools can use robotic telescopes located around the globe to image astronomical objects, allowing students to participate in real research programmes. The session showed how simple it is to use the telescopes (both […]Read more "Rugby 2019"
