Abstract

In this astronomy education program featuring robotic telescopes, pre-post changes in youth participants’ science affinity, STEM identity, and STEM career interest are modeled to measure impact of core program elements. These elements are designed to support authentic inquiry: e.g. requesting images with robotic telescopes; using image processing software to enhance and make measurements of images; asking questions; connecting science to everyday life.
