Periodically I will upload prospective activities for each of the waveband teams to use this summer in the All-Stars workshop. To review, each team will be attached to the following missions: Gamma ray – Fermi X-ray – Chandra UV – Galex Optical – SDSS I have taken a look at an activity from Chandra that […]
The All Stars Application April 2013 is ready for distribution. Please pass this on to prospective participants!
Here is a draft of the summer 2013 Course Schedule that lays out the skeleton of a course plan. We will work in wavelength-specific teams. The general plan is for each team to focus on the lessons in their wavelength module in the first week; and in the second week, work on a NASA mission data […]
Here is the content for two of the upcoming physics lessons. They will be produced using the same template as the gamma ray lessons. A third physics lesson on instrumentation is also forthcoming. Energy and Force Fields and Particles
I have attached the calendar for summer 2013, FYI. All Stars Summer 2013 Calendar March 2013
Here are two of the four X-Ray lessons now ready to go into production. X-Ray science and impact are forthcoming in about one month. Friedman X-Ray History Lesson November 2012 Moseley X-Ray Tools Lesson October 2012 Let me know what you think!
This list will point you to specific sources for using NASA data organized according to wavelength. http://coolcosmos.ipac.caltech.edu/cosmic_classroom/teacher_research/otherpgms.shtml
