Paper Abstract

The idea for developing the Telescopes In Education (TIE) program began around 1990. While working with Boy Scouts, it became apparent that optical astronomy captivated the interest of more boys and their parents than any other Merit Badge that I had worked with in the past. That was the beginning of the learning curve in astronomy and optical instruments.
