Electromagnetic Spectrum FAQ's

Q: Is the pre-mission lesson plan necessary for the mission?


A: It is highly recommended that you conduct the pre-mission lesson plans so that students receive the most they can out of the e-lab, building upon their prior knowledge of the electromagnetic spectrum.  If the pre-lab lesson cannot be completed prior to the e-lab, at least some type of introduction to waves and energy should occur in class.



Q:  If I have a class size of 32, can I still conduct a mission with all of my class involved?


A:  Yes, the additional students could be distributed to teams; however if there are more than 35 students we would ask that you separate the students into two missions so that everyone can enjoy the full experience.



Q: I have a computer lab; can all students use their own computers?


A: The minimal amount of computers needed for the Electromagnetic Spectrum e-Lab is one for every 2-3 students, but additional computers will be highly beneficial so that all students may use the computer interface.



Q: Do all students require the printable materials for the e-Lab?


A: Yes.  All students will need copies of the lab journal for the actual e-Lab.
