Please provide a short description of your activity and its outcomes. Be sure to include essential key words or index terms to help users find resources using our search/browse functions. You will find a sample description below.
"In this lab, participants interact with simulation results through a visualization package. Students gain experience using the particular visualization package common to most of the other labs and use different visual tools common in space weather, such as cut planes and field lines. Results from three different space weather models are used as examples: the MAS model that simulates the solar corona, the ENLIL model that simulates the solar wind, and the LFM model that simulates the magnetosphere. The goal here is not for students to understand the models completely, but rather for them to gain experience with the visualization package and to think about how it might be used to explore these models."
Describe briefly how you determine whether students have met the goals of this activity.
