Imagine the Universe! Version 3. [CD-ROM].
Whitlock, Laura; Bene, Meredith; Granger, Kara
This CD-ROM contains four astronomy and space science learning center sites individually captured from the World Wide Web in January of 1999. Each site contains its own learning adventure full of facts, fun, music, beautiful images, movies, and excitement. Space science learning sites include: (1) Imagine the Universe! geared for ages 14 and up and dedicated to a discussion about the universe--what is known about it, how it is evolving, the kinds of objects and phenomena it contains, and resources for educators; (2) Star Child, an award-winning site for younger astronomers between the ages of 4-14 that introduces the solar system, the universe, and space exploration and includes activities, movies, and puzzles; (3) Astronomy Picture of the Day, which contains different images or photographs of the universe along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer; and (4) AstroCapella, a collection of rock music-inspired a cappella tunes and hands-on activities on the wonders of the universe.
