Astronomy Students Go Where Few Go

Recently, six astronomy students from Clear Creek Middle School returned from a national astronomy conference in Dallas, Texas.

The young astronomers will soon be making a second trip, this time to Yerkes Observatory in Wisconsin to attend a high school conference.
