Revealing the Hidden Wave: Using the Very Small Radio Telescope to Teach High School Physics
Doherty, Michael; Fish, Vincent L.; Needles, Madeleine
Physics Teacher, v49 n9 p546-549 Dec 2011
Scientists and teachers have worked together to produce teaching materials for the Very Small Radio Telescope (VSRT), an easy-to-use, low-cost apparatus that can be used in multiple laboratory experiments in high school and university physics and astronomy classes. In this article, we describe the motivation for the VSRT and several of the laboratory investigations that are being used in local high schools.
