WHAT WE CAN PROVIDE FOR THE CUB PROGRAM - LVAAS SUPPORT IN RED

 
Requirements for the Astronomy Academics Belt Loop
    1.     Set up and demonstrate how to focus a simple telescope or binoculars. We can open up the observatories (weather permitting), teach the scouts what the major pieces of the scopes are and how to adjust and use the scope. Time and weather permitting, we will allow them to observe an astronomical subject.
    3.     Explain the following terms: planet, star, solar system, galaxy, the Milky Way, black hole, red giant, white dwarf, comet, meteor, moon, asteroid, and universe. Each scout should select one or two terms, research the terms and present what they have found.
 
Requirements for the Astronomy Academics Pin
    1.     Draw a diagram of a telescope and explain how it works. We can open up the observatories (weather permitting), teach the scouts what the major pieces of the scopes are and how to adjust and use the scope. Time and weather permitting, we will allow them to observe an astronomical subject.
    2.     Locate and identify five constellations. You may use a telescope. During our program, we can discuss these terms and provide the scouts with handouts if necessary. If the weather outside does not permit viewing of constellations, we can use the planetarium.
    3.     Using a telescope, find at least one planet and identify it. Possible - based upon the weather and available planets
    4.     Find the North Star. Explain its importance. We can provide the scouts with this information. Weather permitting we will view the North Star outside, if not we will view the North Star using the planetarium.
    6.     Visit an observatory or a planetarium. Give a report on what you learned to your den. We can provide a planetarium program for the scouts.
