Learners will become familiar with the vehicles of two Mars missions: Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Pathfinder and the rover Sojourner (note: the activity could be easily adapted to be based on more current Mars missions and spacecraft). They will... (View More)

This article describes an indoor, game-type demonstration, incorporating physics (EM wave modulation), math (binary codes), space technology, and music to show how spacecraft put information into the radio signals they send back to Earth. The... (View More)

Audience: Middle school

This activity is about planetary rovers. By designing the FIDO (Field Integrated Design and Operations) & Athena Long-Range Rover, learners will be able to identify instrumentation aboard the rover and then create and explain the instrumentation on... (View More)

This is an activity about satellite size. Learners will calculate the volume of the IMAGE (Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration) satellite, the first satellite mission to image the Earth's magnetosphere. They will then determine the... (View More)

This is an activity about digital imagery and technology. Learners will create a picture using graph paper containing ones and zeroes and instruct others to reproduce it without showing it to them, just like digital technology. After, in groups,... (View More)

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

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 digital imagery and technology. Learners will create a picture using graph paper containing ones and zeroes and instruct others to reproduce it without showing it to them, just like digital technology. After, in groups,... (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)
