Expert Presenter: Dr. Doug Duncan
is a faculty member in the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary
Sciences of the University of Colorado, and Director of Fiske
Planetarium, the most active university planetarium in the US and the
largest between Chicago and the Pacific coast.

Dr. Duncan is Author of the book “Clickers in the Classroom: How to Improve Science Teaching using Classroom Response Systems.”
He also served as national Education Coordinator for the American
Astronomical Society, the society which represents the 6,000
professional astronomers in the US. In that capacity he led efforts for
better teaching and public communication for astronomers throughout the
United States.

Dr. Duncan has also been an astronomer on the
staff of the Space Telescope Science Institute at Johns Hopkins
University in Baltimore, Maryland. There he was responsible for one of
the Hubble Space Telescope’s original instruments. He and his research
team currently study the composition of the oldest known stars –
'fossil stars' - which date back almost to the time of the Big Bang.
Their discoveries have provided direct evidence of the explosive birth
of our Milky Way galaxy, and shed light on conditions at the time of
the Big Bang which began the universe itself.
