NASA Learning Objects: GAVRT (Goldstone Apple Valley Radio Telescope)

A valuable website from NASA's Deep Space Network. GAVRT (Goldstone Apple Valley Radio Telescope) teaches students to use radio astronomy, to control a huge antenna, and to collect science data from objects in the universe at which the antenna is pointed. GAVRT also trains teachers, provides curriculum, and supports classroom implementation. GAVRT uses the Internet to connect students to Operations Control and the antenna. Students are actively involved in handling data for real science applications and learn that science is an ongoing process. Explore the website thoroughly and fees do apply for the training.
