Only materials that I, Justin Higgins 'SciHigg', have developed privately, on my own equipment and time, are listed here.

Links I Made

Links I Use

In alphabetical order, with notes about how I use it. As I only design this course for being a 1 semester class, I will always have more material than can be covered.

  • AstroBites - Graduate students explaining their research. Great for reading up on Astronomy as a topic. I read it about once a week.
  • Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) - Run by NASA. But, will link to copyrighted material, so watch the ownership at the bottom of the screen.
  • UNL NAAP Labs - Animations with student guides / worksheets. Work great, if you still have Flash. They are converting to HTML 5, but the process appears slow.
  • The Nine Planets Blog – Much better than Astronomy.com or Space.com for keeping up with current research.
  • Universe Today – Sometimes posts pictures that can be analyzed by students. When they are in the curriculum I have designed I link to that article directly.
