Resource Guide

Light but Strong graphicLight but Strong: A Lesson in Engineering
Let your students become a NASA materials engineer! Using items such as straws, tape, and cardboard, students design and build a mobile launcher platform that is light enough to be moved to the launch pad, but strong enough to hold the weight of a rocket. Linked to Next Generation Science Standards, this activity is appropriate for a variety of grade levels and settings.
