Yesterday was a day of talks, today we are highlighting some more of the exhibits!
If you want to get some more Astronomy into the classroom (and who doesn’t?) then Our Solar Siblings has made it easy for you. Explore the Solar System and the Universe through the activities and then hop online to drive a remote telescope to take your own data. This is real science in the classroom at it’s best.
Our Solar Siblings
Our Solar Siblings is a high school level project where teachers and students can use research-grade robotic telescopes in the classroom. The project is focused on the Year 9/10 Australian Curriculum but is also used in Year 11/12, the International Baccalaureate, astronomy clubs and individual student researchers. Some students have even gone onto publish their own science papers using data from the telescopes.
Led by Dr Michael Fitzgerald from Edith Cowan University, who will also be taking the Science Stage to show some of the work students have been doing, Our Solar Siblings provides a complete astronomy program.
Come and say hello to the Our Solar Siblings team at their stall on the Lower ground Floor and find out how you can bring real astronomy science into your classroom.
