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

This is an activity about the existance of infrared radiation. Learners will measure and compare temperature changes due to radiation in the visible and infrared parts of the spectrum using a strong light source. This activity is part of "Ways of... (View More)

This is a lesson about the role of robots in space exploration. Learners will examine their prior notions of robots and then consider the characteristics and capabilities of a robot, like the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft, that would be sent into space... (View More)

In this lesson, learners will use History of Discovery cards and interpretive skits to examine how scientists throughout history have explored Saturn. The lesson enables students to discern the multicultural nature of scientific inquiry and to see... (View More)

This is an activity about light. Learners will calculate the peak emission wavelengths corresponding to objects at various temperatures, helping them understand, among other things, why the Sun appears yellow. This activity is part of "Ways of... (View More)

This is an activity about Saturn's rings. Learners will will build simulated Saturnian rings and then shine a flashlight through them to understand how stars can be seen through Saturn's rings, even though the rings look solid from a distance.... (View More)

This is an activity about gravitational fields. Learners will use rolling BBs in a magnetic field, to understand the concept of a spacecraft trying to escape a planet’s gravitational field. This activity is part of "Ways of Seeing," an... (View More)
