The Universe to the classroom

The ‘Universe to the classroom “is about using astronomical observations enabling young people to get unique insights about our place in the universe and also provide them with an alternative perspective on our lives. The remote control of an advanced telescope system at the amateur astronomical Tycho Brahe observatory in Oxie can give exceptional digital images of deep sky objects obtained directly to the classroom. The project is directed mostly to high school students and provides a powerful support for teachers in subjects like physics, science and engineering. Apart from the purely astronomical observations the project gets the students to come into close contact with digital high technology.
