April 2010-March 2011 updates for Ms. Kelly

Published: March 15, 2011

Susan Kelly's students presented their experiences as participants in the Spitzer Space Telescope Research Program for Teachers and Students at the Summer AAS meeting in Miami. Their poster was entitled Spitzer/WISE Research program for Teachers and Students: Student Perspective of a Multi-wavelength Observing Campaign. The students were interviewed by several local newspaper reporters about their participation in the conference and research program.

This summer Ms. Kelly's research students participated in an international campaign to analyze data from the Wide-Field Infrared Survey (WISE). The goal of this program is for students to confirm and identify new asteroids in the WISE images.

In order to share infrared astronomy education and research resources, Ms. Kelly will present at the following professional development workshops:

  • Cool Astronomy with NASA, Teacher Workshop (full-day), American Museum of Natural History, New York, New York, November 20, 2010
  • Cool Astronomy with NASA, Teacher Workshop (half-day), American Association of Physics Teachers, Jacksonville, Florida, January 9, 2011
  • Asteroid Research with NASA's Wide-Field Infrared Explorer, National Science Teachers Association Conference, San Francisco, California, March 11, 2011
