These two video segments introduce students to extremophiles, organisms that thrive in conditions too extreme for most other living things. Students will learn about the intense living conditions in which extremophiles are found and how studying... (View More)

During this immersive virtual field trip to the Grand Canyon, learners investigate geologic records to discover what the rocks reveal about life and environments of the past. They will then apply those same investigative techniques to the search for... (View More)

Hear from a NASA scientist and a NASA engineer as they describe their roles in the design and development of one aspect of the James Webb Space Telescope. The video reveals the importance of collaboration in continually moving exploration forward.... (View More)

Invisible Mars is a Science on a Sphere (SOS) and planetarium program that examines the story of water on Mars. NASA’s MAVEN mission (Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission) is providing new information about the atmosphere of Mars and its... (View More)

Learners design and build a device that can take a core sample from a potato. Includes challenge video, leader notes, and handouts. Two supplemental videos are included: 1) NASA's Curiosity rover drills into a rock on Mars and collects a sample and... (View More)

Learners design and build an airbag system that can safely land an egg dropped onto the floor. Includes challenge video, leader notes, and handouts. Two supplemental videos are included: 1) An airbag landing system in action as a NASA rover lands on... (View More)

Through the use of rhythm patterns of sounds presented in a solar system model, learners will collect data to determine orbital periods. Then, using that data, they will derive Kepler’s Third Law (the relationship between the distance of planets... (View More)

Learners design, build, and improve a model that mimics gravity-assisted space travel. The design solution enables a steel ball (spacecraft) to roll past a magnet (force exerted by a planet), which will alter its direction in order to hit a... (View More)

Learners design and build a device that can pass above a surface and detect magnetic fields. The video shows kids using the engineering design process, applying a variety of science concepts (e.g., force, magnetic fields, mapping), and learning... (View More)

This series of investigative activities for Cadette Girl Scouts begins with an overview of our inner solar system, emphasizes the planetary histories of Mars, Earth and Venus, then concludes with evidence for the greenhouse effect on Earth. The... (View More)
