The Guest Investigator Puzzle

The Guest Investigator Puzzle

This lesson plan, created by Isabel Hawkins and Timothy Keys of the University of California, Berkeley, is meant to familiarize students with different star spectra using NASA's Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer. The interactive sky map will allow students to see spectra from images taken in the extreme ultraviolet by the EUVE . Then the students can match up the spectra with examples of spectra from different star types. This is a nice resource to help students contextualize concepts in both physics and astronomy.
