Presented at the 85the
AAVSO Spring Meeting, April 13, 1996
As a student participating
in the AAVSO's Hands-On Astrophysics: Variable Stars in the Physics/Math Lab
(HOA) project, I have learned how to observe variable stars, begn to understand
the astrophysical reasons for stellar variability, and am now able to
contribute my observations in response to AAVSO Alert Notices. My involvement
in HOA was the driving force for my high school science project.
