Andrew Caldwell is a full-time astronomy and geology member at Front Range Community College-Larimer Campus. He conducts open house nights for Stargazer and Sunlight Peak Observatories. Prior to coming to the Larimer campus, he taught high school science in Castle Rock for 13 years. His interest in astronomy began early, growing up near Kiowa with night skies well away from city lights. He also developed a love of geology while in high school in Colorado Springs and majored in geology at CU Boulder, where he was first introduced to meteorites. After graduation, he began volunteering with the Denver Museum of Nature and Science (DMNS) and eventually started graduate school at UNC Greeley. He wrote a Master’s Thesis on possible meteorite craters in Colorado and organized meteorite searches and field trips for the DMNS. The connections he made between meteorite research and teaching allowed him to become a member of the 2002/2003 Antarctic Search for Meteorites (ANSMET) team. Andy spent two months on “the ice” collecting with his team over 600 meteorites.
