Description:

Project CLEA at Gettysburg College and the XMM-Newton Education group at Sonoma State University have created a new computer-based activity. Students analyze realistically simulated X-ray spectra of a supernova remnant and determine the abundances of various elements in them. It includes a teacher manual and a pre- and post-test for assessing the activity.
