NASA CONNECT: Data Analysis and Measurement - Having a Solar Blast DLESE Reviewed Collection
In this program, students learn how NASA researchers study the Sun-Earth connection. Students learn about satellites that monitor the Sun: (Solar & Heliospheric Observatory) SOHO, Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE), and Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration (IMAGE) and (Highg Energy Solar Spectrostopic Imager) HESSI. They observe NASA researchers using data analysis and measurement to determine the solar cycle of the Sun. By conducting hands-on and web activities, students make connections between NASA research and the mathematics, science, and technology they learn in their classrooms. The program consists of two parts: a 30-minute video and an on-line educators guide.
