Description:

This is a website from the Pennsylvania State University Center for Gravitational Wave Physics that offers hands on activities for instructors and students. The activities include an icebreaker that asks the students to search for evidence of simulated gravitational waves in noisy data sets. In the other activity the students must extract information related to the mass and distance of an astrophysical source by using plots of simulated gravitational wave signals.
