HST 25th Celebration: A Look Back In Time

Apr. 01, 2015, at 4:00 p.m. EDT and repeated at 7:00 p.m. EDT

Audience: Pre-service, In-service, Home School and Informal Educators of Grades K-8

How did it all start? Who is Edwin Hubble? Why do we need a space telescope? Relive the realization of a dream as the Hubble Space Telescope was launched onboard Space Shuttle Discovery. Learn how fuzzy photos required a spectacular repair mission. See examples from deep space such as stars, planets, galaxies and beyond. Make real world connections with everyday technologies as you learn about NASA STEM resources to build and launch satellites using the engineering design process.

 

HST 25th Celebration: Through the Eyes of the Hubble Space Telescope

Apr. 08, 2015, at 4:00 p.m. EDT and repeated at 7:00 p.m. EDT

Audience: Pre-service, In-service, Home School and Informal Educators of Grades 6-8

What’s the view like from the "eyes" of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST)? Become an astronomer by analyzing images captured by the HST. Explore the different types of telescopes and how they observe our universe. Also, in this interactive webinar, discover NASA STEM resources and learn how to build a make-and-take telescope with your students.

 

HST 25th Celebration: Hubble Math

Apr. 13, 2015, at 6:00 p.m. EDT

Audience: Pre-service, In-service, Home School and Informal Educators of Grades 5-12

Participants in this webinar will get an overview of resources for teaching math using the Hubble Space Telescope. Discussion will include classroom modifications.

 

HST 25th Celebration: Hubble Deep Field

Apr. 20, 2015, at 4:00 p.m. EDT and repeated at 7:00 p.m. EDT

Audience: Pre-service, In-service, Home School and Informal Educators of Grades 5-8

What is the Hubble Deep Field? The Hubble Deep Field represents a narrow view of the universe, covering a speck of sky. Essentially a narrow, deep “core sample” of sky, the field is similar to a geologic core sample of Earth’s crust. Just as a core sample represents a history of the evolution of Earth’s surface, the Hubble Deep Field image contains information about the universe at many different stages in time. Let’s discover together what the images from Hubble are telling us about the universe. Also, in this interactive webinar, discover NASA STEM resources to understand the vast size of our universe.

 

HST 25th Celebration: Hubble, Sofia, & Your Cosmic Connection to the Universe

Apr. 21, 2015, at 4:00 p.m. EDT and repeated at 7:00 p.m. EDT

Audience: Pre-service, In-service, Home School and Informal Educators of Grades 9-12

In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Hubble has revisited the famous Pillars of Creation, providing astronomers images in near-infrared light. NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) is the world's largest airborne astronomical observatory & features a far-infrared telescope. Together, we learn more about the structure and formation of our universe. Come experience a Universe Trail Mix activity that demonstrates the role of the Big Bang Theory, fusion in stars, and supernovae creating all of the elements on the periodic table.

 

HST 25th Celebration: NASA Space Telescopes – Past, Present and Future of STEM Exploration

Apr. 23, 2015, at 6:00 p.m. EDT

Audience: Pre-service, In-service, Home School and Informal Educators of Grades 5-8

 

Explore the history of NASA Space Telescopes that expand our understanding of the solar system and the universe beyond. The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will be the focus. NASA STEM curriculum, online resources, careers and the Next Generation Science Standards will be integrated in the "out of this world" webinar that celebrates the HST 25th anniversary.
