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 Engineering, Forestry & 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).
