Astronomy Club

The goal of the University of Arizona Astronomy Club is to inspire and assist anybody with a passion or interest in astronomy and science. The Astronomy club provides opportunities to work on astronomy projects with other students and astronomers who care deeply about astronomy education.



GEMS (formerly Tucson Women in Astronomy):  The Gender Minorities group (GEMS) at the Department of Astronomy and Steward Observatory works to raise awareness around and promote gender equality in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). We welcome people of all genders who are interested in improving gender equality in the field of Astronomy, and particularly encourage those who identify as gender minorities (e.g., female, transgender, or non-binary) to join us.
