In Fall 1998, the NRAO received a grant from the NSF Informal Science Program. Our project, called Catching the Wave, includes interactive exhibits,and programs for K-12 students and the general public. We are excited to have the opportunity to enhance your visit to the NRAO! In addition to providing fun learning experiences for the public, we focus on K-12 students in West Virginia, and surrounding states. We are creating programs–field trip experiences– that meet national science education standards and state-based science learning goals.
