FT Team Stretch to San Diego

Last month, Fraser and Sophie from the FT team were in San Diego showcasing some of the work schools have been doing with the telescope network.

They attentded the Robotic Telescopes, Student Research and Education (RTSRE) conference and were invited to talk about some of the work they have been doing.

The conference focused on robotic telescopes around the world and how they have been used by students and schools. Many local students also attended to show some of their work, discuss the success they've had with the telescopes and even the science publications they have produced.

Fraser and Sophie talked about some of the previous work schools involved with FT have produced, various collaborations and also the opportunities that we provide to students in terms of observation and data analysis projects. 

The Faulkes Telescope Project generated a lot of interest and many schools in America were eager to get involved and work with other schools in the UK and Europe.
