October-December 2006 updates for Ms. Weehler

Published: December 15, 2006

Ms. Weehler presented a seminar at San Antonio Science and Math Saturday on October 7, hosted by South San Antonio Independent School District. She presented the Spitzer Teacher Research Program to seven math and science teachers. They were very enthusiastic about the program; the Calculus math teachers asked about using data from sources such as WMap to measure shape of the Universe, another teacher was interested in the RBSE Program and contacted them. Everyone gave her their email addresses, and she has been in contact with all of the participants, who were from 5 different school districts in San Antonio.

Ms. Weehler is using the notes she took in Pasadena this summer to write steps for teachers and students so they can use the data her team has collected, including Russ Layer's Excel Worksheet, making light curves, color-color plots, and SEDs. With Dr. Luisa Rebull, she wrote a chart of notes indicating the characteristics of young stars that include those they will use to identify their young stars as actual candidates.
