This is a activity about how reaction wheels affect spacecraft orientation (attitude). Learners will observe Newton's Third Law (action-reaction) in the changes caused by a reaction wheel acting upon a spacecraft suspended from a support wire and in... (View More)

This activity is about the remote operation of planetary rovers. Using remote control cars and other materials, learners will simulate the experience of trying to operate a planetary rover and working as a team to address challenges and meet a... (View More)

This activity is about rocket propulsion. Learners will use use baking soda and vinegar to propel an object across the floor and understand how real rockets propel themselves in space. This activity should be carried out with adult supervision. This... (View More)

Learners will become familiar with the vehicles of two Mars missions: Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Pathfinder and the rover Sojourner (note: the activity could be easily adapted to be based on more current Mars missions and spacecraft). They will... (View More)

This is a classroom bingo-style game about vocabulary and concepts related to Mars and Mars missions. A list of vocabulary words and their definitions is provided. Note: Find the latest information and updates on Mars missions at the NASA Mars... (View More)

This is an activity about the Mars Pathfinder mission. Learners will use household materials to build a model of the lander, parachute and air bags in order to replicate the entry, descent and landing of the payload. Instructions, materials list and... (View More)

This activity is about the Mars Pathfinder spacecraft. Using cardboard and other materials, learners will create a two dimensional model of the spacecraft. A diagram with approximate measures of each component is provided. Note: Find the latest... (View More)

This is a lesson about elemental abundance in solar wind. Learners will count elements extracted from a simulated sample and learn how the extraction of atoms from the Genesis samples help scientists have a better understanding of the abundances of... (View More)

Audience: High school
Materials Cost: $1 - $5 per group of students

This is an activity about satellite size. Learners will calculate the volume of the IMAGE (Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration) satellite, the first satellite mission to image the Earth's magnetosphere. They will then determine the... (View More)

This is an activity about scale model building. Learners will use mathematics to determine the scale model size, construct a pattern, and build a one-fourth size scale model of the IMAGE (Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration)... (View More)
