[A forwarded message, received on Sept. 8, 2006]

High school teachers: consider this opportunity to apply for the
Astronomy Reseach-Based Science Education workshop at the National
Optical Astronomy Observatory in Tucson. This program, beginning its
11th year (and formerly known as TLRBSE) will be offering a selected
group of high school teachers an opportunity to spend 10 days at an
astronomy workshop in Tucson next June, including four full nights
observing with a variety of research telescopes at Kitt Peak National
Observatory. Participants will also take an on-line course in the
spring to prepare for the observing experience.

Applications are due Oct 31, 2006
