In this workshop, you'll create your own colored astronomical images using real data captured by NASA flagship missions like the Hubble Space Telescope.

Learn more about the research process, and how these images play a role in the process.

Presenter is Rob Marshall who was selected by NASA for the NASA/IPAC Teacher Archive Research Program (NITARP) which gets teachers involved in authentic astronomical research. They partner small groups of educators and a mentor professional astronomer for an original research project.
