2009 is the International Year of Astronomy! It’s a perfect time to treat yourself to an astronomy class at Foothill College, in Los Altos, just off freeway 280 between San Francisco and San Jose. As a community college, Foothill welcomes students from ages 16 to 80+. Some students take classes as part of a degree program, but many come just to take one or two classes for fun and self-improvement. Fall classes start Sept. 21.
This fall we offer:Astronomy 10B – Stars, Galaxies, and the Universe
Astronomy 36 –This one unit course accompanies the Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series. Just attend each of the six lectures in 2009-2010 (you may watch one on the Web) and write a short paper.
The instructor for these classes was named California Professor of the Year in 2007, in recognition of his ability to explain scientific concepts in everyday language and with a sense of humor.
