Green Bank Observatory STEM Educator will speak to SVARC

Green Bank Observatory speaker

At its March 4, 2021 membership meeting, we’re delighted to welcome Luci Finucan, who is part of the STEM Education team at Green Bank Observatory in Green Bank, WV. A physics major with graduate work in education, Luci is one of a few international ambassadors accepted into an elite STEM education program called the Astronomy in Chile Educator Ambassadors Program (ACEAP) .

It brings educators of all types, from formal and informal teachers to amateur astronomers together to learn more about US astronomy facilities in Chile, and share that knowledge with others. What should have been a field experience became mostly virtual because of COVID.

“I believe that science and education have been the deciding factors in creating the world we live in today, and are the keys to shaping our futures,” says Luci. You can read more about Luci HERE.

She’ll be telling us about the Green Bank Radio Telescope Observatory, so come with questions and support this interesting speaker.
