Expand your knowledge of the Universe from your school
The CESAR team provides free online interactive tools and material to introduce students in the field of astronomy, science and technology by doing what we call, a Science Case. In some of the Science Cases, students will be required to use the CESAR observatories, which means, they will have to follow all scientific method for the very beginning. The scientific cases are not only to make science approachable for young people but also to help them develop their critical thinking.
Choose the correct Science Case
Depending on student's age and their knowledge of mathematics and physics, the Science Cases are divided into three difficuly levels: high, medium and low. Teachers can then choose the best Science Cases for their students. Not all the Science Cases are developed for all levels, but most of them are. Please read the complete guide of how to perform a Science Case with your students available here.
Prepare for a Science Case
Most of the Science Cases already have all the documentation to be able to complete them in 30-60 minutes. Some others will also require to contact CESAR team to use the obvervatories for taking necessary images of the Sun, Solar Sistem planets, and many more.
For each Science Case, we provide:
Together with the Science Cases, CESAR also provides with several booklets which can help students to get a better background and a better understanding of different topics.
