This activity introduces learners to the visible portion of electromagnetic spectrum. A visible spectrum is projected in the classroom using a diffraction grating and learners reproduce it using colored pencils. Filters are also used to block portions of the spectrum. This activity is available on the back of the Electromagnetic Spectrum Poster which is a collaborative product of Astrophysics missions ... Full description.

This is an activity about electromagnetism. Learners will set up a simple circuit using a battery, wire, and knife switch, and then use a compass to map the magnetic field lines surrounding the wire. Next, they will add a coil of wire to the simple circuit and map the magnetic fields again. This is the second lesson in the second session of the Exploring Magnetism teachers guide.

This is an activity about electromagnetism. Learners will use a compass to map the magnetic field lines surrounding a coil of wire that is connected to a battery. This activity requires a large coil or spool of wire, a source of electricity such as 3 D-cell batteries or an AC to DC power adapter, alligator-clipped wire, and magnetic compasses. This is the third lesson in the second session of the ... Full description.

This is an activity about electromagnetism. Learners will use a simple circuit powered by a battery source to investigate the strength of the magnetic field produced by a coil of wire in the circuit. The strength will be indicated by the deflection of magnetic compass needles and by the distance a coil of wire was moved by the action of the circuit. This activity requires coils or spools of wire, ... Full description.

This is an activity about magnetic induction. Learners will induce a flow of electricity in a wire using a moving bar magnet and measure this flow using a galvanometer, or Am meter. Through discussion, this activity can then be related to magnetic fields in nature. This activity requires use of a galvanometer, bar or cow magnet, and wire. This is the fifth lesson in the second session of the Exploring ... Full description.

This is an activity about electromagnetism. Using a battery and a length of wire, learners will construct an electromagnet and investigate the number of paperclips the electromagnet can hold for an electromagnet with twenty loops of wire versus one with forty loops of wire. A six to twelve volt battery, a large nail or metal rod, and insulated wire are required for this activity. This is the fourth ... Full description.

This is an activity about magnetism and magnetic forces. Learners will explore objects to which a magnet is attracted or repelled, and investigate the attractive and repulsive forces of two like and two unlike magnetic poles. This is the first activity in the Exploring the Earth's Magnetic Field: An IMAGE Satellite Guide to the Magnetosphere educators guide. Full description.

This activity deepens student understanding of the electromagnetic spectrum, enabling students to detect and consider wavelengths other than visible light. They learn how these other wavelengths can be used to "see" things we cannot see with our eyes-allowing space scientists to detect and image objects, phenomena, and sources of energy far off in space. Examples of these images are included in the ... Full description.

One of the greatest mysteries of all is what causes gamma ray bursts. These bursts are the most powerful explosions in the Universe and occur about once a day. Their origin is unknown, although there are several theories. Students learn about NASA's Swift mission, with a specially-equipped satellite to further explore the causes of gamma ray bursts. This activity is part of the Great Explorations ... Full description.
