Use these educational video segments to inspire and engage students.
NASA has inducted more than 80 high-performing interns into a new virtual community.
Stay connected with NASA's human exploration activities in and beyond low Earth orbit.
From the time of our birth, humans have felt a primordial urge to explore -- to blaze new trails, map new lands, and answer profound questions about ourselves and our universe.
In this real world application, students will use integration to find the volume of the Orion Crew Module - NASA's newest spacecraft.
Students will utilize graphing calculators to make applications of differentiation to the mission data of a space shuttle ascent phase.
In this exploration activity, students will use the application of differentiation – related rates, to solve problems pertaining to the ascent portion of the Lunar Lander.
Future outposts on the Moon will require lunar surface equipment to maintain communications with Earth. Students will use differentiation - chain rule to derive a solution to this space exploration problem.
On the lunar surface, environmental sensors and instruments will need to be placed within proximity of a lunar outpost. Students will work with vector addition to find an answer to this space exploration problem.
Students will analyze two different approaches for completing a task based on a number of constraints and will determine the optimal method. Students will apply vector addition, as well as critical thinking skills.
Students will apply equations of motion and force to solve for unknowns in this real world application about human exploration missions to the Moon.
Students will learn about the parabolic flights of NASA's C9 jet - the Weightless Wonder, as they use equations of motion to derive a solution to a real life problem.
The Advanced Resistive Exercise Device, or ARED, is one of the exercise devices astronauts use aboard the International Space Station. ARED uses vacuum cylinders to simulate free weights for resistive exercise that helps astronauts maintain bone and muscle strength while in space. In this activity, students will analyze different aspects of the mechanics of the ARED device.
This resource page provides information about some of the careers NASA has to offer and the opportunities available for students.
