Session 30 - Teaching Astronomy with the WWW.
Oral session, Monday, January 13
Hands-On Universe (HOU) is an educational program that enables students to investigate the Universe while applying tools and concepts from science, math, and technology. Using the Internet, HOU participants around the world request observations from automated telescopes, download images from a large image archive, and analyze them with the aid of user-friendly image processing software. HOU has developed a comprehensive set of curriculum activities for high school students and is being used in hundreds of high school classes around the world. Currently under development are HOU activities for informal science centers, middle school and undergraduate courses.
