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 projects and activities for advanced astronomy students. Students may learn about the 50 million galaxies found so far by The Sloan Digital Sky Survey and how scientists classify these galaxies by their characteristics. The interaction between galaxies is also studied by looking at galaxy clusters and Galaxy Cannibalism. Activities are provided to increase students' knowledge about galaxies by asking them to determine how galaxies evolve given galaxy redshifts.
