What is iSKY?
We see the stars every night and know they are far away, but it is difficult to understand what a light year actually means. The teaching unit ‘iSky: Smart Measurements of the Heavens’ inspires you to investigate the stars.
What do you do?
Using various apps on your smartphone, you learn how to orientate based on the night sky, how to measure the altitude of the Sun, or how to calculate the circumference of the Earth.
