The Ring Nebula

A 6-year old's journey to the jewel of the sky.

This charming Tour is a great example of how WWT can be used to engage even the youngest students in astronomy and science.  The Tour-authoring interface might seem daunting to some adults ("digital immigrants"), but we've observed that children ("digital natives") are happy to leap right in and try out all the different buttons and menus.  Please see "Learn WWT" in the main menu at the top of the screen to access our tutorials.



The full version of this tour can be downloaded here (by right-clicking) and viewed in the desktop version of WorldWide Telescope.
