Bachelor of Science in Astronomy Technology: A Model
Astronomy is one of the most fascinating fields of study and has captured the interest of a growing number of young people in the Philippines. In this piece, I describe a new program designed to introduce astronomy to younger people, with the goal of encouraging them to make science and technology their lifetime careers. Perhaps the experiment that we are conducting in the Philippines can serve as a model for astronomy educators in other developing economies that wish to encourage the formal pursuit of the science even with limited resources.
