Description:

This Hubble Space Telescope image captures thousands of sparkling young stars nestled within the star-forming nebula NGC 3603. This stellar "jewel box" is one of the most massive young star clusters in the Milky Way Galaxy. The image and text describe a family portrait of stars in different stages of their lives, from infant stars still wrapped in cocoons of gas to stars nearing the end of their lives. In the accompanying educational activity, In Search of ... Stellar Evolution, students investigate stellar evolution through a level 1 inquiry activity using the images and text from the lithograph and other resources. A level 1 inquiry activity can help prepare students to become independent thinkers.
