In this activity, polystyrene spheres and strong magnets are used to represent the Sun and Earth, and their distinct magnetic fields. Participants construct and use a "field detector" to predict where the magnetic fields are, and "field bits" to form loops and trace the invisible magnetic fields of the Sun and Earth. The activity is designed to be used in an informal public outreach setting. It can ... Full description.

This kinesthetic science activity reintroduces participants to three states of matter (solid, liquid, gas), and introduces them to a fourth state of matter, plasma, and its connection to the Sun. It also demonstrates how the addition of energy can transform matter from one state to another. The activity reviews common examples of matter in each state, like liquid water and water ice, oxygen and carbon ... Full description.

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.
