Detection of Gravitational Waves - resources for teachers

For teachers who would like to take advantage of the huge amount of interest in Gravitational Waves brought about by this week's ground-breaking announcement, ISE partner Chris North has put together some useful resources, Chris is also working on a demonstrator which he hopes to have ready shortly which will be available in the ISE portal.

Here are some of the resources suggested by Chris that teachers may find useful:

  • Black Hole Hunter is an online game that allows you to hunt for audio signals in the data, it requires headphones and is available in German, English, French, Spanish, Italian and Romanian.
  • A recording of the press conference is available
  • Some amazing videos here
  • Here are a selection of relevant science summaries
  • A nice videofrom Cardiff University about the discovery

Thanks Chris!
