Abstract

The measurement of the separations and position angles of double star makes an ideal science activity for small research group at the community college and even high school levels. The concepts involved are relatively simple and only modest equipment is required. Observations and analysis can be included in a paper and submitted to the Journal of Double Star Observations, which welcomes student papers. Through this process, students learn about science, become coauthors of a published paper and, as a result of their research and publication, can obtain a scholarship to the college of their choice.
