Abstract: Giving STEM-oriented students a chance to participate in project-based instruction of a general education astronomy class will turn them on to the excitement of teaching, which will increase the desperately short supply of highly qualified physics teachers. The general education students will also benefit by experiencing more authentic scientific inquiry than is typical in a general education class by receiving more support and direct feedback from students in the field.”
