Each middle school in Huntsville City, Madison County, and Madison City was invited to
send one group of 48 students to the planetarium for a program which illustrated lessons
contained in the Sun in Time curriculum (transportation was paid for by NASA
IDEAS Grant 033-97). Teachers were presented with a packet of materials which
included assorted lab activities and an outline of the curriculum. Much of the
material which was presented in the planetarium program has been adapted for the Sun
in Time web pages as well as two of the labs. Teachers, please review and use
the materials contained in these web pages.
The Sun in Time, sponsored by the NASA IDEAS program, is a joint partnership between NASA, the Von Braun Astronomical Society, and Huntsville area middle-schools. Materials were developed by Mitzi Adams, NASA astronomer; Beth Bero, middle-school teacher and lecturer for the Von Braun Astronomical Society planetarium; and Tom Sever, NASA archaeologist.
