Our Mission: Provide Education & Opportunities in Science


Boyce Research Initiatives & Education Foundation (B.R.I.E.F) is proud to offer Boyce-Astro.Org: making Astronomy local and educating our youth in the process of Science through the love and beauty of Astronomy.  

Through the use of modern technology BRIEF is expanding our youth's knowledge of the Astronomy through educational programs, research opportunities, and local Star Parties. Since our foundation we have achieved the following milestones: University of California approved Astronomy High School Course, published 6 papers, taught College level Astronomical Research course, worked on projects from major universities (Harvard & Johns Hopkins), and provided both Star and Solar Observation opportunities.

NEXT, BRIEF is finalizing our Robotic Science Observatory and continuing our collaboration with iTelescope on various research projects. Use this website as your resource for Astronomical Eduation. If you are interested in more information, please visit our Contact Us page.
