WISE and Asteroids: Information for Teachers, Students, and the rest of us

The Hands-On-Universe (HOU) Wise page has more information related to the WISE spacecraft (and its goals to find asteroids) and one of its program to provide outreach to students. This site provides materials for teachers to use to educate students specific to the use of WISE to find asteroids. The information is also generally useful as educational resources for all persons, regardless of age. There are multiple presentations available on WISE as well as a student primer on WISE and asteroid investigations.
