More than ever, Native Americans are striving to improve education opportunities for their children and for generations to come, particularly in scientific fields in which their voices are not being heard. Lowell Observatory’s Native American Astronomy Outreach Program (NAAOP) has been working to enhance STEM education in Native classrooms since its founding by Lowell astronomers Dr. Deidre Hunter and Dr. Amanda Bosh more than 25 years ago.

Field Trips and Camps
Field trips at Lowell are a truly unforgettable way to introduce your students to the wonderful world of astronomy. Students explore the stargazing technology of the past and present during a telescope tour, then learn about the universe and participate in fun experiments during one of our immersive science talks.
Lowell Observatory is proud to offer Lowell Observatory Camps for Kids (LOCKs). These hands-on day camps offer kids the opportunity to learn about STEM through activities such as science investigations, games, story time, music, engineering, art, and more. We currently offer three camps: LOCKs: Preschool, LOCKs: Elementary School, and LOCKs: Middle School.
