Our Solar Siblings

About us

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. It employs an embedded professional learning program for the teacher while the students undertake authentic astronomical analyses of data collected by professional grade astronomical telescopes. Thus, 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.
