DIDACTICS

EXPECTATIONS

Make your own hypothesis and share them with your colleagues.  What we expect that will happen and why?

QUESTIONS
FACTS
EXPERIMENTS

Proceed working in groups preparing your experiments and collecting data. 

REFLECTIONS

Analyze your results and make conclusions. Compare your findings with your expectations

3 Energy Bill Task

In this hands-on activity, the students calculate the solar luminosity with a smartphone to compare and discuss results obtained in different epochs and from different latitudes.

O1Act1.JPG

1 The Naked Eye

This activity is intended to explain the basics of the scientific method, by observing a simple picture of the sun.

O1Act4.JPG

4 Oscillations

This set of activities is intended to explain the connection between the vibrational patterns of an object and its internal structure and dynamics.

2 Energy Bill

This activity uses the generation of energy between the sun to explain the scientific method, in particular the connection between hypothesis, experimentation, refutation and/or confirmation.

O1Act5.JPG

5 Solar Oscill.  

This set of activities is intended to explain the connection between the vibrational patterns of the sun and other stars and its internal structure and dynamics.

Auroras, the physics behind

Auroras - Why do they occur where they do?
A study of the movement of charged particles in magnetic fields.

O2Act2.JPG

Magnetic field

The activity provides an understanding about how measurements of the magnetic field can give valuable information about the Northern Lights.

Balloon data vs atmosphere

This task uses data obtained from a meteorological balloon to analyse atmosphere's physical parameters and compare with the standard atmosphere model.

THE SUN-EARTH CONNECTION
