I am excited to share the news that the SDO Project Suite curriculum passed NASA Review.
The entire curriculum is available for download at:
Please contact me if you are interested in implementing part or all of the curriculum, I welcome the opportunity to collaborate in both formal and informal education settings. Here is a summary of the curriculum:
The SDO Project Suite is an NGSS-aligned curriculum that integrates new and adapts existing solar and space weather resources, which can be completed as a coherent unit or as individual lessons. The SDO Project Suite consists of a series of four student-led Solar Modules, with real-world application, that provide an interactive exploration of Solar Science:
Module 1: Introduction to the structure and features of the Sun.
Module 2: Investigate how and why the Sun is studied via the electromagnetic spectrum and magnetism.
Module 3: Explore the significance of solar activity and the effects of space weather on Earth.
Module 4: Student collaboration to design, create, and curate a 3-D Solar Exhibit summative assessment
