This is an activity about area and volume. Learners will use fabrication software to determine the optimal size of a satellite which can fit within a given rocket cylinder. To complete this activity, fabrication software is required (an example is... (View More)

Audience: Middle school

This is an activity about using models to solve a problem. Learners will build four models of the MMS satellites using fabrication software. Their designs will based upon observations and data collected through prior activities (in the educator's... (View More)

Audience: Middle school

This is an activity about using models to solve a problem. Learners will use a previously constructed model of the MMS satellite to determine if the centrifugal force of the rotating MMS model is sufficient to push the satellite's antennae outward,... (View More)

The goal of this lesson is for students to understand how to plan a mission to another world in the solar system. They begin by discussing the path of a spacecraft traveling between planets, examining the journey from the Earth to Mars as an... (View More)

In this lesson, students observe the surface of rotating potatoes to help them understand how astronomers can sometimes determine the shape of asteroids from variations in reflective brightness.

This activity provides instructions to create 3-D images using a digital camera, photo editing software, and red-blue 3-D glasses.

This is an activity about three dimensional imagery. Learners can follow the instructions to create their own 3D images using a digital camera, photo editing software, and red-blue 3-D glasses.

Students critically interpret graphical data and evaluate and discuss the difficulties inherent in interpreting and forecasting long and short term trends in this introductory climate change investigation. Graphs of data needed for this exercise are... (View More)
