NOAO < EDUCATION < ASTRO Chile: Nature of Light

Nature of Light Videoconferences for Teachers (2002)

In the first videoconference the teachers exchanged methods and ideas about how to explain and demonstrate the nature of light and color to students of various ages. Four bilingual science teachers from the Tucson area discussed pedagogical approaches with their teaching counterparts in Chile. The first two workshops included demonstrations, project presentations, and the construction and calibration of spectroscopes. The Chilean teachers used these spectroscopes to examine a number of light sources in their town and presented their findings at the second workshop.
