This module engages students in the use of a clean room and in the planning of assembly of solar collector wafers for the Genesis space mission. They will work in production design teams to explore how the Genesis spacecraft will collect bulk solar wind with the collector arrays and learn to work as a team in a restrictive environment. The module includes several activities with accompanying video ... Full description.

The purpose of this resource is to have students develop a qualitative understanding of the characteristics and patterns of seasons and highlight the relationship of seasons to physical, biological and cultural markers. Students observe and record seasonal changes in their local study site. They establish that these phenomena follow annual cycles and conclude the activity by creating displays that ...

This middle/junior high school computer activity has students use data from a radar wind profiler in Oklahoma to determine wind speed and direction at different heights in the atmosphere. In combination with the millimeter wave cloud radar instrument data, students interpret how a front affects wind speed and direction. It is part of the Atmospheric Visualization Collection (AVC), which focuses on ... Full description.

This middle/junior high school activity asks students to create a physical shoebox model to simulate the tracking of a storm by modern weather radar and to use the model to distinguish between areas of storm intensity and internal air circulation. Computer models from the Internet are available for those wishing to create images of the shoebox model data. The exercise is part of the Atmospheric Visualization ... Full description.

Black holes are some of the strangest objects in the universe. While the physics of these objects is not understood, and they cannot be seen directly, indirect observations have revealed for certain that black holes do exist. This animation shows an artist's conception of what it might be like to see a super-massive black hole in the center of a spiral galaxy. A background essay and list of discussion ...
