Using the Investigations
On the start page of every investigation there is an opportunity to enter a passphrase. The passphrase enables you to preview the investigation without having to enter answers. It is not required to begin an investigation.
The passphrase for all investigations is 3ducatorMod3.
All of our investigations and the support materials are free to use anytime. You don't need to register to use them. But if you wish to use the assessments, you must create a free teacher account. (There will be a short delay while we activate the account.)
To create an account, try to view any assessment. This is typically done by choosing option 4 on the landing page of any investigation (such as this one).
Rubin Observatory provides free training to help educators learn how to use and integrate investigations into their classroom context. To arrange a training opportunity for your district or department, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
