Each student requires their own PC or laptop with access to the World Wide Telescope web client. This workshop gives the students the oppurtunity to see how astronomers use the EM spectrum to do their research.

You can download the WWT software on your own computers for Free from the WWT Website. If you do not want to download this software (it does require alot of free hard drive space ) just choose to "Run web client" which you can access through the WWT website main page (click button on the right).
