Welcome to the Wilderness of Rocks!

The Wilderness of Rocks introduces Middle School students to astronomy and asteroid science as part of your Earth science class. Introduce your students to hands-on scientific research through the use of remote-controlled telescopes. They will be able to gather their own images of asteroids and share them with other students across the country.

Here you will find ready-to-use student activities with supporting scientific readings and images, Teacher’s Notes suggesting time-flexible ways to use the materials, links to state and national standards, guidelines on how to observe asteroids, and instructions on how to sign up for telescope time!
