WWT Hubble Lab

The WWT Ambassadors and faculty and staff at Bucknell University have developed a hybrid lab involving both hands-on and virtual activities that focuses on the Hubble Law, expansion of the universe, and large scale structure. This lab, designed for non-science undergraduates in an introductory astronomy class, combines investigation with tactile models in a laboratory environment with analysis of real astronomical data, and detailed visualization using astronomy visualization software. Students are therefore able to both explore the universe on its largest scales and...

WWT Parallax Lab

The WWT Ambassadors and faculty and staff at Bucknell University have developed a hybrid lab involving both hands-on and virtual activities that focuses on the concept of parallax. This lab, designed for non-science undergraduates in an introductory astronomy class, combines real-time modeling in a terrestrial environment with detailed visualization using virtual environment software. Students are therefore able to both explore parallax as it is viewed astronomically and develop physical intuition for the concept by measuring it in real time.
