Celebrating the International Year of Astronomy The Hubble Classroom Collage Activity

Hubble Collage Showcase

Images from the Hubble Space Telescope inspired K-12 classes in the U.S. to create unique collages of their favorite Hubble photos. They entered their creative Hubble Classroom Collage projects on Amazing Space and voted in the “Hubble’s Next Discovery: You Decide” contest, in which the public cast votes for the next target Hubble would observe. The winning target, a system of galaxies called Arp 274, was included in each of the collage entries. Here, we celebrate the inspiring creative work we received.
