[Workshop] - Explore the Expanding Universe with Vera C. Rubin Observatory
10:30 - 12:00
Presenters: Ardis Herrold, Fernanda Urrutia and Justine Schaen Aimed at both in-person and online participants
Are you looking for a way to teach Hubble’s Law and properties of the Universe using real data? Vera C. Rubin Observatory has developed a series of free online astronomy investigations using authentic data that provide rich and interactive experiences for students. During this session you will learn how we can observe the expansion of the universe through time by analyzing data from galaxies and supernovae. You will explore our new Expanding Universe investigation and related support materials. The primary audience is advanced middle school through college introductory astronomy (“Astro 101”) students. There will be opportunities to discuss how this investigation may be adapted to work in your classroom contexts and support your learning outcomes. Please bring your computer."
