"Markers in the Sky

During this outdoor activity, the student will use an app, and the night sky, to learn the names and purposes of reference markers commonly used in Astronomy. The use of the app will essentially assume the role of “painting” these markers on the real night sky. Through a series of observations and questions, they will gain familiarity with these markers, using both simulations and real views of the sky.
