NASA and PBS's "Design Squad®" offer students six hands-on engineering challenges for class time or after-school programs.
09.22.09 - Students investigate the relationship between mass, acceleration and force as described in Newton's second law of motion.
09.15.09 - NASA is more than astronauts.
What can an instrument in space tell us about the fires tearing through southern California?
09.09.09 - This poster and series of activities make the use of measurement and computation in mathematics visible to students.
08.11.09 - Add a little space to your classroom this year with NASA educational resources.
08.25.09 - Students determine the scale factor in a picture to calculate the size of places and other planets.
08.17.09 - A recent meteorite discovery on Mars and an edible classroom activity provide a scrumptious way to kick off the new school year with a meteorite lesson.
08.04.09 - "Selene," a NASA-funded game, guides students to see the moon in a new way.
