This is an activity about cratering. Learners will simluate planetary impact craters on a small scale in the classroom. Relationships between mass and velocity (kinetic energy) of the impactor and crater size are explored, both qualitatively and... (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 an activity about how impacts in space increase the heat of planetary bodies. Learners will demonstrate the conversion of kinetic energy (energy of motion) to heat (thermal) energy by hammering a nail and feeling its temperature increase.... (View More)

Audience: Middle school

This is an activity about gravity in space. Learners will use water in a cup to demonstrate “weightless” conditions in free-fall. This activity is part of "Ways of Seeing," an interactive, educational CD-ROM from NASA's Cassini Program. The... (View More)

This is an activity about cratering. Learners will observe and identify distinctive features of craters. This exercise will help students grasp how craters provide information about the history of the solar system. This activity is part of "Ways of... (View More)

This is an activity about orbital speed. Learners will create an analogy to planetary orbits using weights on a string that demonstrates the farther a moon is from a planet (or a planet from the Sun), the slower its orbital speed. This activity is... (View More)
