Explore and Discover Observing
Find an Asteroid, Comet or Other Moving Solar System Object. Follow the motions of known solar system objects. Search to discover new ones. There are countless asteroids and comets orbiting the Sun. Plenty for everyone to track and map. All are interesting. Some astronomers are searching for ones that are in Near Earth Orbit and other astronomers search for dim ones way out by the orbits of Pluto and beyond.

Busing for Integration vs. Neighborhood Schools
This lesson plan will introduce students to the political, social, and economic issues surrounding school desegregation using oral histories from those who experienced it firsthand. They will learn about the history of the "separate but equal" U.S. school system, the 1971 Swann case which forced Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) to integrate, and the recent decision to discontinue busing for racial integration in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. They will compare and contrast neighborhood schools with s
