A Radio Astronomy Design Project
During this lesson, students will be introduced to Radio astronomy and the telescopes which are used in the discipline. They will then be challenged to design a dish for a brand-new telescope.
HS-PS4-1 Waves and their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer. Use mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media.
HS-PS4-5 Communicate technical information about how some technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit and capture information and energy.
