- Studying Young Stars - More information on the study of young stars, by Dr. Luisa Rebull (2011)
- Finding cluster members - Spitzer in particular is so sensitive that it easily sees things at the far reaches of the Universe with only a few seconds' integration. When studying clusters of stars, one of the first major goals is to figure out which objects are truly cluster members and which are not. This page has a discussion of how to find members of young clusters in general. by Dr. Luisa Rebull (2017)

IC2118 was one of the very first teacher teams.
- Introduction to IC2118
- Specific IC 2118 information
- Monitoring young stars - The IC 2118 team embarked on a campaign to monitor some of the candidate TTauri stars that we found using Spitzer data. They used ground-based telescopes to see if the stars vary.

- Studying Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons -- Many astronomers use the Spitzer Space Telescope to detect or study "polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons," or "PAHs" for short. What are these things? In short, rings of carbon, like the grunge on your grill. But what else are they, and why are they important?
