Post Field Trip Resources
The activities listed below offer opportunities for teachers to expand the learning that occurred on the recent field trip to LIGO.
A LIGO game! Similar to the "Noisy Data" activity above but done with sound instead of graphs.
Provides a very nice 7-minute video and other LIGO resources, such as a virtual interferometer. You'll find good information on a variety of issues related to gravitational waves
A tremendous free astronomy tool. WWT software must be installed the local computer.
Analyze data directly from LIGO's seismometers using a handy Web interface! Students can make a research project using LIGO seismometer data.
