Lesson Plans

The primary objective of this web-site is to provide complete lesson plans for teachers. Each of the lesson plans below exists as as complete unit. Background and supplemental information for these lessons and for introducing radio astronomy and space science to students can be found here.

Resources are available to make radio astronomy part of a high school physics or astronomy course. You can take a field trip to Haystack or another radio observatory. By building a small radio telescope (SRT) you can do radio astronomy at your school. It is also possible to use the 37 meter telescope at Haystack Observatory to make remote measurements.

If you are interested in scheduling a field trip to the Haystack Observatory, please call us at 781-981-5407 and ask for Susan.

Caught in the Solar Wind

Humans in the 21st century are relying more and more on technology that has the potential to be disrupted by the sun’s influence on Earth’s ionosphere.  Space weather is a concept that is becoming more familiar to the general public and will be in the spotlight as we approach the next solar maximum.
