Maryland Day 2005

30 April 2005

Well, it wasn't as pretty as last year... It rained and rained, but at least it was warm and we still had a great time!

Was held on Saturday 30 April 2005 from 10am until 4ish. Once again, the Astronomy Department was set up with the other CMPS departments in front of the Math and Physics buildings along Campus Drive.

Official Maryland Day website

Here are the events that we held:

  • Ask an Astronomer -- We will have a table set up with info about the department and careers in astronomy. I hope to have department faculty and students manning the table and available to answer your astronomy questions!

  • Deep Impact -- Come by and meet some of the scientists from this exciting NASA Discovery mission. They'll be on hand to answer questions about the mission. In addition, at set times we'll have some comet and crater making demos.

  • Science Discovery and the Universe -- This Astronomy-sponsored program is one of 12 in the College Park Scholars program, a freshmen/sophomore living/learning program. We'll have some hands on arts & craft projects happening here!

  • Solar Observing -- The Sun might not be in solar max but there should still be a few spots visible. We'll be safely observing the sun through telescopes using white light and hydrogen-alpha filters.
