Abstract

This IQP focuses on crafting eleven lab manuals for an Introductory Astronomy course. These manuals cover a wide range of Astronomical concepts from fundamental to advanced topics. Modern experimental methodologies and approaches used by astronomers worldwide are implemented as these labs being developed. This course is designed as a great start-off course for students at junior standings to get familiarized in experimental astrophysics without requirement in prior advanced knowledge of Astronomy.
