Abstract

<p>In this study, we qualitatively investigated the activity processes and learning outcomes of undergraduate students who supported high school students working on astronomical research in MosiTen, an outreach event held by Tohoku University and Sendai Astronomical Observatory. Through semi-structured interviews with two undergraduate students, we found that the undergraduate students found and played their roles through repeated observations of their situations and through self-reflection, in addition to building relationships with high school students and other undergraduate students. Appropriate support by teachers is also important for undergraduate students to promote their learning activities and find their roles. Because of the close interaction between these processes, the undergraduate students developed psychologically and learned about observational astronomy and its research methods.</p>
