In this new Morehead program, students participate in NCSCOS-aligned lessons that explore earth science and astronomy concepts. Students experience exciting astronomy visualizations in our mobile planetarium, explore moon phases and light, learn to map planetary surfaces, hunt for exoplanets, and much more!
How are we able to look so far back into space and time? How does light travel and how do we capture it? How does this journey inform our knowledge of the universe? Where do black holes lead? Students will explore how the Hubble Space Telescope, the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope, and other observatories use the electromagnetic spectrum to give us a brighter picture of the matter and structure of the universe. Through exploration of wavelengths, students will understand how beautiful astronomical images come to life.
