74625 Tieproject

This minor planet is named after the TIE project, or the Telescopes in Education project, an outreach program designed to get K-12 students around the world remote real-time access to actual telescopes, in order to develop interest and knowledge in astronomy [1].

Some of the individuals who have helped coordinate this project include Gilbert A. Clark, creator and outreach director, and Lori L. Paul, assistant director

The symbol of this minor planet is derived from the logo of the project, shown below. It is an open book, with a diagonal line crossing the spine so as to look like a small Telescopium symbol is overlaid on the book.
