Hands-on Universe

Hands-On Universe ? (HOU) is an educational program that enables
students to investigate the Universe while applying tools and
concepts from science, math, and technology. Using the Internet,
HOU participants around the world request observations from an
automated telescope, download images from a large image archive,
and analyze them with the aid of user-friendly image processing
software. The Lawrence Hall of Science at University of California,
Berkeley, is the educational center for the HOU project.
