The Quiet Skies Project
Rapp, Steve
Science Teacher, v75 n7 p62-66 Oct 2008
To help promote student awareness of the connection between radio astronomy and radio frequency interference (RFI), an inquiry-based science curriculum was developed to allow high school students to determine RFI levels in their communities. The Quiet Skies Project--the result of a collaboration between the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO)--encourages students to collect and analyze RFI data and develop conclusions as a team. (Contains 5 figures and 7 online resources.)
