Popular Science Websites
Look through these for astronomy project inspiration. All links lead to the site's astronomy pages, so you should be good to go!
One caveat: if you're off campus, you may not be able to read the entirety of an article without being asked to pay. Keep your wallet closed and follow these simple steps:
1. Try searching the University Library database of Online Journals; enter the name of
the journal, select "Starts with," then click Go. Follow the links to the desired journal database.
2. If you can't find it there, look up (and print!) the article when you get to
school-- so don't wait until the last minute to search!
These databases search scholarly journals and should help you locate original publications of research. Ask Ms. Harris or Ms. Atkinson for help if you have trouble finding what you need.
