Description:

This activity deepens student understanding of the electromagnetic spectrum, enabling students to detect and consider wavelengths other than visible light. They learn how these other wavelengths can be used to "see" things we cannot see with our eyes-allowing space scientists to detect and image objects, phenomena, and sources of energy far off in space. Examples of these images are included in the guide. This activity is part of the Great Explorations in Math and Science guide entitled "Invisible Universe: The Electromagnetic Spectrum from Radio Waves to Gamma Rays" that features five activities. It is available for purchase from the website.
