On teaching teachers

Friday ends the second week of the two astronomy workshops we teach each summer. The first week I was the lead instructor, this week, I'm just a co-instructor. These workshops are the best part of my job -- I really like working with teachers. I found out two things this during this year's program:

  • I can intimidate a veteran teacher by talking about stars. She survived, but I think brain matter is still leaking out of her ears. I never knew I was so scary!

  • You can see the Pierre Auger Cosmic Ray Observatory in Google Earth -- Tool around near Malargue, Argentina. At the North edge of the densest group of buildings, you can see their office with all of the yet to be deployed detectors. Pretty cool.
