This product uses a collection of Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images of galaxies in the Coma Cluster, and engages students in an inquiry-based learning activity studying the evolution of galaxies in dense clustered environments. Students learn the basics of galaxy classification by making use of the HST images to discover a "morphology-density effect," and will then make hypotheses about the cause ... Full description.

In this chapter, users take the role of students from a small town in Colorado, who team up with students from the town of Churchill, Manitoba, to explore changing sea ice conditions in the Arctic. Together they examine an animation that shows 30 years of satellite images to see how the extent of sea ice in the Arctic has diminished over time. The chapter storyline is built around the real-life case ... Full description.
