# International Space Station LABS: Science Activity 1 Velocity: Launching the ISS into orbit

Learners will investigate how lateral velocity affects the orbit of a spacecraft such as the International Space Station (ISS). Mathematical extensions are provided. This is science activity 1 of 2 found in the ISS L.A.B.S. Educator Resource Guide.

Keywords: Gravity

# International Space Station LABS: Science Activity 2 Matter: Growing Space Crystals

Leaners will grow a sugar crystal and learn how this relates to growing protein crystals in space. The lack of gravity allows scientists on the space station to grow big, almost perfect crystals, which are used to help design new medicines. This is... (View More)

# International Space Station LABS: Engineering Activity 1 Structures: Toothpick Truss

Learners will construct two different types of trusses to develop an understanding of engineering design for truss structures and the role of shapes in the strength of structures. For optimum completion - this activity should span 3 class periods to... (View More)

# Properties of Matter

Learners will explore the conditions required for water to be in a liquid state. They discover that temperature is the essential variable. They then explore how temperature is not a measure of heat but of the average motion of molecules of a... (View More)

Audience: Middle school

# Mars Pathfinder Egg Drop and Landing (EDL)

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)

# Mars Pathfinder Two-Dimensional Model

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)
