Abstract

This paper briefly documents: the history of the Charles Sturt University Remote Telescope Project, from its inception in 1994; its achievements through its impact on students and participating teachers both nationally and internationally; and, its production of research papers in an environment designed to encourage the engagement of students. Its development was based on problem solving processes at a time when both the hardware and software were lacking and teachers more generally were afraid of getting involved. Collaborative problem solving amongst hardware, software and networking engineers working with science-education specialists occurred in a cooperative environment, where the latter was driven by the desire to improve science education more broadly than just solely in the astronomical domain.
