Science Bulletins Website DLESE Reviewed Collection
This Web site offers three Science Bulletins ? Astro, Earth, and Bio ? which present ongoing research and recent discoveries in astrophysics, Earth science, and biodiversity. Each bulletin has three types of stories: features, data visualizations, and weekly news snapshots. The Astro Bulletins weekly update includes a sequence of current images of the Sun provided by Steele Hill at Goddard Space Fight Center. The video and editorial crew follows scientists into the field to capture original video material and interview scientists about their work-in-progress for the feature stories, which are presented as high-definition videos for informal learning centers as rich-media collections on the Web. Data visualizations, presented in high-resolution for informal learning centers and in interactive formats on the Web, are based on satellite data sets from NASA, NOAA, and other sources for Earth and Bio; while AstroViz draws from the Museum?s Digital Universe project, a growing three-dimensional map/database of celestial objects which has been developed with NASA support to enable science visualizations for research and education purposes. A free Educator?s guide and learning activities tailored to the changing content are provided for the Science Bulletins Web site.
