Target audience: Year 10 science
What processes produced galaxies and stars, and how has the Universe evolved since the Big Bang? Students use virtual observatory software and direct observation with robotic telescopes to learn about the observable Universe.
This resource makes extensive use of Stellarium, free virtual observatory software, and the SPIRIT robotic telescopes.
Evolution of the Universe includes four separate resources:
- Galaxies (use of Stellarium)
- The SPIRIT telescopes (use of robotic telescopes)
- History of the Universe (video-based interactive learning object)
- Stars (astrophotography with SPIRIT)
Are you interested in using SPIRIT?… Continue reading
