Moore Observatory of the University of Louisville and Mt. Kent Observatory of the University of Southern Queensland support teaching and research by their students and faculty in programs in Astronomy, Physics, and Atmospheric Sciences. We offer assistance with classroom content for teachers, and scaffolded instructional activities with archival data, robotic observations with our telescopes, and live observing from the classroom and home.

Shared Skies facilities are available to students at the University of Louisville and the University of Southern Queensland, and to teachers and students in middle and high schools mentored by faculty at the universities. Please contact us by email to kielkopf at louisville dot edu.
