This Web site contains information for both partners (those with their own telescopes) and associates (those who wish to use a network telescope.) The purpose of the Global Telescope Network (GTN) is to use small telescopes to obtain ground-based observations of high-energy objects of interest to Swift, GLAST (renamed Fermi in 2008) and XMM-Newton missions. It is used both by formal educators working ... Full description.

In this chapter, users explore relationships between air quality and population density using the image visualization tool, Google Earth. Humans discovered long ago that burning fossil fuels was a convenient way to get power. In engines for automobiles and plants that generate electricity, huge volumes of oil, gas, and coal are burned every day. Where many people live together in concentrated areas, ... Full description.

These space weather monitors, which detect changes to the Earth?s ionosphere caused by solar flares, can be installed and used by students at their local schools. Students build their own antenna, a simple, low-cost structure. Stanford provides a centralized data repository where students can exchange and discuss data.. The instruments are nicknamed SIDs, for the Sudden Ionospheric Disturbances that ... Full description.

This lesson plan uses NASA satellite data to contrast amounts of cloud coverage over different climate regions in Africa. It introduces the circulation pattern of Hadley Cells and the band of convergence and convection called the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). The lesson also discusses how frequent cloud cover and precipitation occur along the ITCZ and how climate affects the people living ... Full description.
