Dublin students use largest solar instrument in the world

The Perkin Observatory at Dublin School is helping the National Solar Observatory develop the remote observing capabilities of the McMath-Pierce Solar Telescope, equipped with a NASA camera.  Director of the Perkin Observatory Joseph Putko formed this collaboration so that Dublin students can use cutting-edge technology and learn about the science of the Sun.

Biology Classes Use Telescope in Addition to Microscope

The Perkin Observatory hosted Ms. Jackson's Biology students during their introductory unit.  Life is an important theme in the Universe.  Over the course of several evenings, small groups of students visited the Observatory to study some of the conditions necessary for life (as we know it) and the possibility of life on other worlds.
