Big Explosions and Strong Gravity DLESE Reviewed Collection
This guide has been developed to assist people who would like to run the Big Explosions and Strong Gravity event with their local Girl Scout Council. The event is a one-day event in which a group of Girl Scouts spends their time doing a series of hands-on activities on spectroscopy, cosmic abundances, supernovae, and black holes. Professional scientists, engineers, and graduate students assist with these activities, giving the scouts a chance to interact with professionals in science and technology fields.
