This project aims to use the possibilities of the Internet to transform the classroom into a research laboratory.
The Teaching Science with Robotic Telescope (TSRT) project intends to use a 60 cm Cassegrain type remotely controlled telescope and take advantage of the popularity of the subject of Astronomy, in order to develop a framework to teach science to High school students through a multidisciplinary approach.
The project will demonstrate in practical terms how e-Learning can improve and enrich the quality of the learning and teaching process in science and technology.
Additionally it will contribute significantly to increase accessibility to unique resources, as the sky is a vast and unique laboratory of science, always in operation, accessible all the time by everybody from everywhere, where all sorts of interesting physical phenomena take place most which are impossible to reproduce in any scientific laboratory.
