Title:
The Pulsar Search Collaboratory
Authors:
R., Rosen; S., Heatherly; M. A., McLaughlin
Abstract:
The Pulsar Search Collaboratory PSC NSF #0737641 is a joint project between the National Radio Astronomy Observatory and West Virginia University designed to interest high school students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics related career paths by helping them to conduct authentic scientific research. The 3 year PSC program, which began in the summer of 2008, teaches students to analyze astronomical radio data acquired with the 100 m Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope for the purpose of discovering new pulsars. We present the results of the first complete year of the PSC, which includes two astronomical discoveries.
