OUR SOLAR SIBLINGS AND EDITH COWAN UNIVERSITY GRADUATE RESEARCH SCHOOL
A collaborative exhibition telling the story of the Our Solar Siblings Research Project.
Our Solar Siblings is an inquiry-based project for high school level astronomy. It is an investigative data and inquiry driven curriculum replacement for the “astronomy out of the text book” approach commonly undertaken in high schools. The personnel in the project provide teaching and learning support, access to research grade telescope instrumentation from the teacher’s classroom and extensive curriculum materials who would like an opportunity to undertake authentic astronomy in their classrooms with a minimum of stress and preparation.
All images photographed by students or participants of the Our Solar Siblings Project, supplied by Professor David McKinnon and Michael Fitzgerald. All images edited and exhibition curated by Zal Kanga-Parabia.
