|FEATURES OF THE PROJECT...
A FOCUS ON KEY PRINCIPLES provides a solid foundation that leverages future learning in physical science.
STUDENT INVESTIGATIONS provide students with "ownership" of images and data, while reinforcing key science principles.
EMBEDDED ASSESSMENTS enable you and your students to gauge what and how they are learning.
TEACHER'S GUIDE makes it easy to select investigations that reinforce your existing curriculum. Also includes background and recommended extensions to all activities.
A COMMUNITY OF LEARNERS share data, images, and results with each other, making it easier to complete even complex investigations with the telescopes—and making possible projects that one class alone could not complete.
STUDENTS PUBLISH RESULTS ONLINE and build on the results of other student investigators—promoting a critical examination of data.
ONLINE DISCUSSIONS provide critical contact among teachers, allow ongoing support and growth.
