What’s for dinner on the moon? Astronauts will need to grow food when they return to the moon and eventually travel to Mars. Challenge your students to design and build a lunar plant growth chamber.
“How does it feel to float? How does a spacesuit work?” A downlink is the ultimate “ask the experts” experience! During a downlink, students talk live with astronauts and cosmonauts on the International Space Station.
There is no place like home! Take pictures of our home planet with a camera located on the International Space Station. Students direct the camera to take photographs of Earth from 250 miles above its surface.
“KC5ACR, this is NA1SS. How do you read me? Over.” Astronauts and cosmonauts on the International Space Station use ham radios to talk to students and educators. Do you want to find out how to talk with the space station?

NASA Education invites students to drop everything! NASA's Dropping In a Microgravity Environment, or DIME, and NASA’s What If No Gravity, or WING, challenge students in high school and middle school to design and build an experiment to be conducted in a NASA research drop tower. This will put the students' experiment in microgravity, just as if it were in space.
Give your students the ultimate “going green” challenge! Your students can create a sustainable water recycling system for the moon and win a trip to the NASA Kennedy Space Center!
