10.05.10 - In this activity, students use astronomical photographs of solar system bodies to determine how large a celestial body must be before it starts to look round. Student and teacher pages are included.
12.01.09 - Students operate a robotic vehicle that is not directly in view of the driver or operations team.
10.20.09 - Investigations in this NASA educator guide explore the question of whether there is water on Mars.
10.14.09 - Use these Web sites and classroom activities to bring Earth science into your classroom.
NASA and PBS's "Design Squad®" offer students six hands-on engineering challenges for class time or after-school programs.
09.22.09 - During 15 years of flight and 199 missions, the X-15 became the fastest and highest-flying piloted winged airplane of its time. The X-15 set NASA on course for the exploration of space.
What can an instrument in space tell us about the fires tearing through southern California?
09.09.09 - Use this resource guide and a NASA Brain Bites video to discuss density, sinking, floating and Archimedes' Principle.
