Sky Scan Project Description

Sky Scan is a collaboration between the Department of Physics at the University of Alberta and the Edmonton Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.

This project offers a science awareness program in the Edmonton, Alberta area using optical and radio telescopes. Because the Grade 6 Sky Science and Grade 9 Space Exploration units cover sometimes difficult astronomy concepts Sky Scan helps teachers make these units a meaningful and accessible experience.  

Funding provided by the Edmonton Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, the Department of Physics at the University of Alberta, and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada
