Named in honor of Gilbert A. Clark, creator of Telescopes in Education, the first opportunity for students in classrooms to operate a research-grade telescope in real time. Since TIE saw first light in 1994, several thousand students and their teachers have observed using the 0.6-m reflector on Mount Wilson, thereby providing inspiration in astronomy, science and critical thinking. With untiring leadership, Clark reassembled and automated a telescope others thought unusable, and he created a team of volunteers, sponsors and staff to keep it operating for students everywhere. Now ready to expand to other telescopes around the world, the educational inspiration of TIE has reached and connected students in inner cities, rural communities and eight different countries.
