Day 122: Astronomy Text Alerts

Screen shot 2014-03-14 at 8.33.05 AM

How many times have I looked up at the sky at night and thought “I wish I could tell my astronomy students to drop what they are doing and go outside and see this”? Too many to count. There is now a way. Today they will follow the directions above and sign up for text alerts from me. The phone number is a randomly generated one and all personal information remains confidential. I will never see students’ phone numbers. The app is free and easy to use (Remind101). They can unsubscribe at the end of the course or not!
