Facts on this site about Uranus include mean distance from Sun, length of year, rotation period, mean orbital velocity, inclination of axis, average temperature (day and night), diameter, and number of observed satellites. Uranus' axis of rotation is tilted nearly 98 degrees, almost perpendicular to its orbit. Consequently, the seasons and days on Uranus are strange. At times, the north pole points ...

In this activity students investigate the role of the Ultraviolet Imager on the Image for Magnetopause-to-Auroral Global Exploration (IMAGE) satellite. They will experiment with color filters and discover that the sun's light can be broken into many colors through the use of a spectrograph. They will also learn that certain wavelengths of energy are not visible to our eyes, and that highly specialized ... Full description.

In this activity, students will discover the magnifying power of a lens and experience how scientists make modifications to these simple instruments in order to get the data they want. They will see that water, bottles, and jars can act as magnifiers, construct their own telescope, and explore why scientists develop new instruments to learn more about the world. Full description.

This activity involves students in learning about energy sources. It demonstrates that energy, the environment and economics are closely tied. During the course of the game and in the discussion afterwards, students will learn the concepts of scarcity, opportunity cost, net energy profit, law of diminishing returns, and that availability does not mean usefulness. In addition students will recognize ... Full description.

In this activity students learn the importance of petroleum products by considering what it would be like to live in a world without them. After the teacher reviews some uses of petroleum as well as some problems caused by the use of petroleum, students study a worksheet that includes pictures of two houses. The houses are identical except everything made with petroleum has been taken out of the second ... Full description.

This activity helps students understand why compass angles need to be corrected for regional magnetic variation. The magnetic compass, perfected slowly over years of experimentation, trial, and scientific endeavor, became the sailor's most common and most reliable direction-indicating aid, but is influenced by magnetic variabilities and the location of magnetic north. Terms introduced include compass, ... Full description.
