The Astronomy Center has provided educational resources to introductory astronomy educators since 2003. Over the past 20 years, the rapid pace of discovery has rendered some of our linked resources obsolete. Thus, the Astronomy Center will be decommissioned on March 1, 2022. Our highest quality resources will be retained on ComPADRE.org.
This website provides a tutorial for students about the bulge, disk, and halo components of the Milky Way. It also contains information about the size and the formation of our galaxy. This site ends with a short quiz.
