This activity explores how ancient Sun observers made use of natural and built structures to mark solar alignments observed at different times of the year, particularly around the solstices and equinoxes. In Part 1, the teacher prepares a horizon... (View More)

This experiment is about data collection. Learners will map out the actual placement of wafers on the Geneisis array and look at the finished array frames in order to identify patterns of wafer materials. Includes a teacher's guide and students... (View More)

This experiment is about contaminiation. Learners will model the process of verifying clean on a macroscopic level by using a small Secchi (se-key) disk and will read about how the Secchi disk is used in environmental science and compare this with... (View More)

This lesson is about cost limitations on mission design. Learners will be given a budget of $150,000 and an approved subcontractor list that has a listing of the materials and costs for construction. This is activity 6 of 7 in "Dynamic Design:... (View More)

Audience: Middle school
Materials Cost: Free

This lesson is about the value of teamwork. Learners will model the assembly of the Genesis wafers onto the collector arrays by working in teams. Includes a teacher's guide and students handouts. Video and audio clips are provided. This lesson 9 of... (View More)

This lesson is about data collection. Learners will investigate different methods of sampling in a simulated cleanroom environment. Includes a teacher's guide and students handouts. This lesson 7 of 10 from the Dynamic Design: The Cleanroom module.

This is a lesson about spacecraft design. Learners will hear the NASA solutions to the problems they wrote about lesson 6. They will then write a nonfiction piece comparing their spacecraft to Cassini, and share their writing with the class. This... (View More)

This is a design challenge about heat transfer and insulation. Learners will apply the scientific method to design and build a container that will keep items cool when placed in boiling water. They will practice collaboration in team-building and in... (View More)

Audience: High school
Materials Cost: Over $20 per group of students

This is a lesson about spacecraft design. Learners will use the information learned in previous lessons, combined with their own creativity and problem-solving skills, to design and test a parachuting probe that will withstand a fall from a high... (View More)

This is a lesson about spacecraft design. Learners will think like engineers as they are presented with problems that the NASA team faced when designing a spacecraft to travel to Saturn. Students work with partners to think of solutions to address... (View More)
