For Amy Jackson of Starry Sky Austin, looking through a telescope is an eye-opening experience, and something she believes everyone deserves a chance to experience for themselves. Amy plans on using the Austin Awesome Foundation's $1,000 grant to fund free astronomy education programs at local recreation centers around Austin.
"My intention is to bring people a new perspective through learning about the universe above," says Amy. "I hope that everyone walks away from our time together with a re-awakened sense of child-like wonder and appreciation for the magnificence and beauty our universe holds."
