the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics
This is a digital project developed to advance knowledge of solar system exploration by providing students with spectroscopic data in an accessible and engaging format. The NASA-funded program blends hands-on activities with the use of real data to solve scientific problems. Each lesson is standards-based and includes background information, teacher's guide, student guide with problem sets, and full instructions for accessing all data-driven material. Several lessons include interactive Flash tutorials and inquiry-based "data stories" using authentic data from actual space missions. The activities can be adapted or modified to accommodate a range of course levels and student abilities.
Lesson topics include: "Graphing the Rainbow", "Using Spectral Data to Explore Saturn & Titan", "Building a Fancy Spectrograph", "Marvelous Martian Mineralogy", and more.
