The EUVE Orbit

Intended for 9th or 10th graders in introductory math classes or trigonometry. Students will use this lesson plan to obtain data directly from the EUVE satellite in the form of the position of the EUVE above the Earth as a function of time. Students will then be able to graph the position of the EUVE satellite on a map of the world and investigate periodic functions such as sine and cosine.

Eyes in the Sky

Middle school students who are taking industrial technology classes (Itech students) will use technology to learn about orbiting spacecraft designed to study astronomical objects. Technological tools will include a Satellite Dish, VCR, the Computer Lab and a modem.

Electromagnetic Spectrum on Trial

As part of this activity, students will put the different types of the electromagnetic radiation "on trial", selecting the judge, prosecutor, defense counsel, and jury, and learning about electromagnetic energy by arguing the pros and cons of each wavelength. The "Trial" is a format which allows students to explore electromagnetic radiation properties. The different types of electromagnetic radiation will serve as the "defendants" who are accused of properties which may, or may not, be true for that particular wavelength.
