Satellite Dataflow Demonstration
- 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.
