The ESA Science Archives contain a wealth of scientific data, freely available online to researchers and the public alike.
To support the research of professionals, the studies of University students and the learning of school children and teachers, the ESDC have created a range of scientific tutorials. These tutorials have been designed to show example science use cases and how the tools can be used by professionals and students to answer scientific questions. The tutorials are step-by-step and in some cases demonstrate how the archives can be used in collaboration with other VO-enabled tools.
The tutorials are the following:
A step-by-step classroom tutorial developed for University undergraduates and school students. This tutorial uses the ESAC SOHO Science Archive and the Ulysses Final Archive..
A classroom tutorial developed for university undergraduates and secondary school students. Uses the ESA XMM-Newton Science Archive and the VO tool Aladin.
A fully developed example science case, using the VO Tools VOSpec and TOPCAT. An older version of the same science case, using VOSpec, TOPCAT and VOSED can be found here.
A step-by-step tutorial developed for university undergraduates and pre-undergraduate students, using the VO tool VOSpec.
A step-by-step classroom tutorial developed for school students. This tutorial uses the VO Tool VOSpec.
