The Space Reasearch Suitcase
As part of our Educational effort we will
develop a "Space Suitcase" or "Space Box" project encompassed in a
suitcase. The suitcase will consist of the following instruments:
- Cosmic ray detector
- VLF receiver
- A simple allsky camera
..and a laptop, with software to display data.
This suitcase will be lent out to high school classes after providing some
instruction on its operation. Following a month or so, of using this suitcase,
the high school students (and teacher) are asked give a presentation about
their research and the resultant findings. The Space Suitcase is then
circulated to another school.
