• Finding an article about astronomy and writing a page about it
• Finding an astronomical concept they found interesting and write a page about that
• Submit a question about physics or astronomy which I would answer and return to them.
I figured most students would just take the easy route and submit questions, which could be of any length, and many did. However, the questions asked weren't simple! Or perhaps the students thought they were simple going in, but it ended up being quite the opposite when answered. I got a kick out of answering these questions each week so much so that I decided to collect some of the most interesting questions I've been asked and answer them* again right here.
