Elementary Astronomy Laboratory Activities
These activities for an Elementary Astronomy Lab were used in classes on campus at the University of Louisville in evolving forms from 1972 - 2017. This page is not currently being updated.
Many of these now have mentored versions for labs that are offered on-line as part of our online Distance Education program. More information is available on request by sending an email to kielkopf at louisville dot edu.
