Help engage students and encourage STEM studies with this site from NASA and Univision. Videos and activities are available in Spanish and English.
In this activity, students construct a robotlike hand to demonstrate how data are collected when using robotic technology.
Students apply mathematics to decompose a cross section of Orion to estimate its area. They then make predictions concerning the vehicle's volume.
Use answers to these FAQs to help respond to students' FAQs.
This educator guide has information about Wilbur and Orville Wright and activities for building gliders.
Students explore the concept of density, then use an online interface to determine the density of dust grains in a volume of space in the solar system.
04.06.10 - This short video explains why astronauts on the International Space Station do not use the sun to tell time.
Combine the thrill of sports with the study of Newton's Laws of Motion with the activities in this guide.
