February 22, 2012
Target: Grades K-4

Length: 30 minutes

The NASA researchers will demonstrate to K-4 teachers and students the principles of microgravity, and will participate in classroom activities designed to demonstrate the effects of microgravity on objects in space. The program will also highlight a classroom experiment where students working in teams will collect and analyze data from the launch of "Fizzy-Tablet Rockets." Former U.S. Senator John Glenn (D-OH) makes an appearance to present viewers with a special message. Number sense and numeration, computation and estimation, measurement, probability and statistics, patterns and relationships, and fractions and decimals will be emphasized.
