  • Observatory Tours - Will make for a long but rewarding day. Rose-Hulman has one of the finest observatory facilities in the state. They have both automated and manual scopes in a dedicated facility. If you're interested in astronomy and wondering what kind of things you and your students can do, they can tell you.
