# Rover Races

This activity is about planetary rovers. Learners will simulate the challenges in communications that engineers face when driving a rover on Mars. They will particpate as part of a rover team to design and execute a series of commands that will... (View More)

# Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Communication Design Challenge

This is an activity about spacecraft design. Teams of learners will model how scientists and engineers design and build spacecraft to collect, store, and transmit data to earth. Teams will design a system to store and transmit topographic data of... (View More)

# Building for Hurricanes: Engineering Design Challenge

This activity is a short engineering design challenge to be completed by individual students or small teams. A real-world problem is presented, designing buildings for hurricane-prone areas, but in a simulated way that works in a classroom, after... (View More)

# International Space Station LABS: Mathematics Activity 2 Orbits: Racing Time in Space

This is an activity about the orbit of the ISS around the Earth. Leaners will investigate the relationship between speed, distance, and orbits as they investigate how quickly the ISS can travel to take a picture of an erupting volcano. This is... (View More)

# International Space Station LABS: Engineering Activity 2 Mass and Speed: Protecting Space Suits from Orbital Debris

This is an activity about keeping astronauts safe from debris in space. Learners will investigate the relationship between mass, speed, velocity, and kinetic energy in order to select the best material to be used on a space suit. They will apply an... (View More)

# Introducing Habitats and Biodiversity

In this activity, students identify habitats in Arizona, define and illustrate a food web in a kinesthetic exercise, and explain the importance of biodiversity in a writing assignment. Required materials include a ball of yarn or string. The... (View More)

# Photons

In this activity using an open space and a thick rope, students simulate the movement of photons from the Sun. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, NASA Why Files: The Case of the Mysterious Red Light. Lesson... (View More)

# Cuáles son las superficies más antiguas en Marte?

This is a lesson about using craters to indicate the age of a planetary surface. Learners will simulate the process of cratering by using falling water drops to make craters in fine silica sand. Then, they will compare the cratered surfaces they... (View More)

# Make a Comet Motion Flip Book

This is an activity about comet motion. Learners will cut out images of Halley's Comet, putting the images in sequential order to create a flip book demonstrating the comet's orbit around the Sun and the formation of the comet's tail near the Sun.... (View More)

# Haciendo Una Película De Un Cometa

This is an activity about comet motion. Learners will cut out images of Halley's Comet, putting the images in sequential order to create a flip book demonstrating the comet's orbit around the Sun and the formation of the comet's tail near the Sun.... (View More)
