Okanagan College capitalizes on its long-standing relationship with the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory, bringing students to the facility every semester. These field trips expose students to cutting-edge research, and reinforces the concepts learned in their classes. The realization that world-class research is being performed in the local community engages students tremendously. We present examples of the unanimously positive experiences of several OC students, and seek to discover other colleges which benefit from such partnerships in other parts of Canada.
