Lessons

Since 1997, ASPIRE has been creating interactive online science lessons and labs to be used by teachers in the classroom with their students. These lessons have been written by teachers, created by web-developers and programmers, while working with research scientists from the High Resolution Fly’s Eye Group at the University of Utah. This collaborative effort has produced a body of labs and lessons unique to the Internet.
