(From 2002 to 2005)



Two magnetism teacher's guides, "Exploring Magnetism" and "Exploring Magnetism in the Solar Wind" were developed by the Education and Public Outreach program of the STEREO-IMPACT NASA funded Mission. FAST helped to print these guides that were reviewed as excellent by a NASA panel consisting of teachers and scientists. The activities and worksheets in these guides are ready for teachers to use in their classrooms! See our Magnetism website or Acrobat pdf files or mail us at and request the printed guides to be sent to you.
