High School Resource Modeling Stellar Evolution

Wednesday, May 08, 2024 7:10 PM | Madison Staton (Administrator)

For those of you celebrating Black Hole Week, I wanted to share a free lesson on stellar evolution. It has a really cool simulation that allows students to model stellar life cycles by creating stars of varying masses and following them through their life cycles. It also tracks the stars on an H-R diagram as they evolve and charts changes in chemical composition. I’ve included some screenshots below.
