The Researchers of Kepler's Laws
The Researchers review web-based and hard-copy references to gain an understanding of the scientific and religious communities’ reactions to the publishing of Kepler’s Laws. Students may work alone or in groups of no more than three to analyze cause and effect, gather and synthesize information, and use their findings to make predictions and judgments. You will gain an understanding of the relationship between religion, culture, and science and discuss the impact of these factors on Kepler’s work and on successive work. You will research and discover the impact of Kepler’s work on future scientific discoveries, specifically Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation and Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, and present your findings through a research paper, bulletin board, video, or Microsoft PowerPoint or Photo-Story (only one required per group).
