WorldWide Telescope Ambassadors Program
Launched in January 2010 in partnership with Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and WGBH, the WWT Ambassadors Program is recruiting astronomically-literate volunteers, including retired scientists engineers—all of whom will be trained to be experts in using WWT as a teaching tool. WWT Ambassadors will help to increase science literacy in the general public while forming intergenerational connections within their communities.
WorldWide Telescope for Classroom Use
Developed material in the form of curriculum guides, lesson plans and additional resources to assist educators and students launching into an exploration of the universe through the lens of the WorldWide Telescope (WWT. Since WWT uses the most current data taken from celestial imaging, users can easily pan and zoom into specific areas of outer space for fine tuned investigations. Images are taken from the Hubble Space Telescope, as well as numerous telescopes here on Earth.
WorldWide Telescope Dome Projects
The WorldWide Telescope Windows Client is configurable for a variety of settings – from large public planetariums using multi-monitor projection systems, to inflatable domes using simple single-surface mirrors and projectors appropriate for school environments or education events.
