In this activity, learners replicate the scientific processes of observing, forming an explanation, revising and communicating about a model of a comet. Learners construct a model of features of a comet using an assortment of common craft supplies.... (View More)

This is a lesson about using gravity to assist in spacecraft navigation. Learners will relate an elastic collision to the change in a satellite's or spacecraft's speed and direction resulting from a planetary fly-by, often called a "gravity assist"... (View More)

In this learning activity, students create a 3D model of part of their local landscape, then make a series of observations from different directions. Using the bird's eye view, they translate the 3D model into a 2D map with a scale and key, and... (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)

In this activity, learners will build a structure using a shoebox, aluminum foil, paper, rubber bands, glue, tape, and other common materials that will meet the following criteria when tested: 1) protect an ice cube from melting under a hot lamp or... (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)

This activity is about planetary rovers. By designing the FIDO (Field Integrated Design and Operations) & Athena Long-Range Rover, learners will be able to identify instrumentation aboard the rover and then create and explain the instrumentation on... (View More)

This is a lesson about the connection between meteorites and asteroids, focusing on remote-sensing techniques using light. Learners will make and record observations and measurements; analyze data and draw analogies; compare samples; measure and... (View More)

In this activity, learners will construct a model of a lunar roving vehicle. This activity is in Unit 2 of the Exploring the Moon teachers guide, which is designed for use especially, but not exclusively, with the Lunar Sample Disk program.
