American Indian Mobile Educational Resources
The American Indian Mobile Educational Resources (AIMER) provides hands-on space science lessons/activities to teach concepts of physics and astronomy and engineering to pre-college Native American students at K-12 schools on rural Indian reservations in Arizona. The project is operated in partnership with the NAU/NASA Space Grant, the Department of Astronomy and Planetary Science and the College of the Environment, Forestry, and Natural Sciences.
In conjunction with daytime classroom visits, we can also set up telescopes for a night-time viewing event for your school community. Please keep in mind that night-time viewing begins about 45 minutes after sunset and requires a clear sky. Additionally, for K-5 schools, we can bring Family Science Night Activities to be set up inside (in a gym, cafeteria or multi-purpose room).
