Astronomy

Rating
3.0 stars

This document provides activities to support the study of everyday phenomena and encourage students to take the first steps towards constructing a scientific model. The activities help students understand the apparent movement of the Sun, the length of daylight and its changes in the course of the seasons, the rotation of the Earth on its axis, the solar system and the universe.

Barycentric Balls - Orbits and The Center of Mass

Rating
0.0 stars

In this activity, the principle of moments is applied to rotating systems to demonstrate the concept of a barycenter, or center of mass, and how objects in orbit around each other move. Students then consolidate this concept by calculating the centre of mass in a number of astronomical contexts.

Cloud Chamber - Radioactivity in a Cosmic Setting

Rating
0.0 stars

Students will work together to build a cloud chamber, a special box designed to detect charged particles and radiation. They will analyse the alpha and beta radioactive decay of thorium-232 and look for charged particles arriving on Earth from space. In a cloud chamber, charged particles leave condensation trails as they pass through. Students will learn to identify the initial particle based on how a trail looks. This demonstration will assist students in their understanding of radioactive decay by providing a real physical demonstration. It will also look at the real-life positive and negative effects of radiation on spacecraft.

Cooking a Comet - Ingredients for Life

Rating
0.0 stars

Teachers and students simulate a comet nucleus in the classroom. The ingredients used accurately represent an analogue of the material found in a real comet nucleus, as discovered using spectroscopy combined with the results from spacecraft flybys of various comets. Analyzing these ingredients can provide information about the conditions of the early solar system as well as the influence of comets on the evolution of Earth.
