Funded by a $3 million Department of Defense (DoD) National Defense Education Program (NDEP) award, MWU! is a national-scale follow-up curriculum to OPIS! This new curriculum, called “Astrophotography of the Multi-Wavelength Universe!” or MWU!, aims to boost the number of students who choose STEM majors.
OPIS! is a laboratory curriculum for non-STEM majors and potential majors that engages students in telescope operations through the Skynet robotic telescope network. The OPIS! curricular sequence is built around the cosmic distance ladder, which serves as an organizing principle in most introductory astronomy courses/sequences.
The materials in this collection were initially created through a three-year project funded by the National Science Foundation (award #1640131), IDATA. Many hands-on resources were developed to support the primary aim of IDATA, the user-centered design of the Afterglow Access software.
Through the ongoing support from the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation, GLAS continues to develop and distribute hands-on materials that were initially created through other funding sources. All ABLE projects seek to develop the production pathways, products, and human resources needed to support equitable access to STEM.
