In connection with the partnership between Jefferson College and the St. Louis Astronomical Society (SLAS) to develop an observatory on the Hillsboro campus, the College will host several informational “Aim for the Stars” observation nights throughout 2021 for those who want to learn more about astronomy.
There is no cost to participate in any of the monthly educational programs, led by Jefferson College faculty and SLAS members.
As the first phase of site development begins, the observatory location is being used by the College as a teaching and learning opportunity for students enrolled in undergraduate science and astronomy classes in connection with lab assignments and in-class discussions.
A new agreement between Jefferson College and Saint Louis University will allow students who complete an associate’s degree at Jefferson College the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree at SLU in two years as a part of the 2+SLU program.
