Many professional astronomy archives are open to the public; software tools are getting better all the time to not just access these data, but also work with them. The Infrared [IR] Science Archive (IRSA) is NASA’s home for long-wavelength data, both space- and ground-based. You can use this interface to pull data to create your own lessons, or turn students loose in the archive to discover features of our multi-wavelength universe.
