10.07.08 - Through the S'COOL project, students report basic weather observations to NASA by recording the type and features of clouds in the sky at the time that a satellite passes over their location.
09.16.08 - Join the Digital Learning Network for a series of introductions to NASA Education resources. The first webcast of the series on Sept. 24, 2008, is a look at new Hubble-related materials.
09.09.08 - In this lesson plan using NASA data, students examine authentic sea surface temperature data to explore how hurricanes extract heat energy from the ocean surface.
08.19.08 - Students can construct a simple refracting telescope with a few materials.
08.12.08 - Download or order the poster with 11 activities on the back.
07.29.08 - Students calculate the diameter of the moon using proportions.
07.15.08 - Students from Pulaski Middle School in New Britain, Conn., show how to design, build and test an experimental glider wing.
07.08.08 - Students build a magnetometer using a bottle and a bar magnet. They then use the magnetometer to monitor changes in Earth's magnetic field. Students also study magnetic storms and their properties.
06.24.08 - Students from Williams Technology Middle School explain how to test baking soda- and vinegar-powered rockets for optimum performance. A link to the teacher guide is included.
