Are you looking for a way to teach Hubble’s Law and properties of the Universe using real data? Vera C. Rubin Observatory has developed a series of free online astronomy investigations using authentic data that provide rich and interactive experiences for students. During this webinar you will learn how we can observe the expansion of the universe through time by analyzing data from galaxies and supernovae.

You will explore our new Expanding Universe investigation and related support materials. This investigation has been designed to support the NGSS but is applicable even if you do not teach the national standards. The primary audience is from advanced middle school through college introductory astronomy (“Astro 101”) students. There will be opportunities to discuss with your peers about how this investigation may be adapted to work in your classroom contexts and support your learning outcomes. Rubin Observatory will provide certificates of participation to all who attend the live workshop.

The webinar begins at 11:00 am EST/ 8:00 am PST on Saturday, March 11 and lasts for 3 hours. The session will be recorded for those who may have time conflicts (except for the time in breakout rooms). To register for the workshop, go to: https://forms.gle/xQXqJ7MstdpwCvDdA
