Presented at the 91st Spring Meeting of the AAVSO, July 1, 2002


Abstract  Teachers and high school students who attended the University of Hawaii’s “Toward Other Planetary Systems” workshop in June 2002 gave presentations on introductory telescope projects on lunar photography, variable stars, and Messier Objects at the AAVSO 91st Spring meeting in July 2002. Other participants discussed advanced projects on photometry, CCDs, and spectroscopy. Former student participants presented the discovery of a new variable star and an on-going remote observing project utilizing the Lowell Observatory 31-inch telescope. These various projects are described and/or summarized.
