In this activity, learners confront their perceptions of gravity in the solar system.
In this activity, learners model the gravitational fields of planets on a flexible surface.
In this demonstration, learners compare the relative sizes and masses of scale models of the planets as represented by fruits and other foods.
In this activity, learners discover the relationship between temperature and pressure in the lower atmospheres of Jupiter and Earth.
In this activity, learners build edible models of Jupiter and Earth to compare their sizes and illustrate the planets' internal layers.
In this activity, learners observe the water cycle in action! Water vapor in a tumbler condenses on chilled aluminum foil — producing the liquid form of water familiar to us as rain and dew.
In this activity, learners test how cornstarch and glitter in water move when disturbed. Learners compare their observations with videos of Jupiter's and Earth's storm movements.
In this activity about the solar system, learners use various light sources to examine ice with different components to understand how NASA studies planets and moons from space.
In this activity, learners shrink the scale of the vast solar system to the size of their neighborhood.
Learners build a model of the planets in the solar system. In their model, the planets are spaced in their relative distance from the Sun.
In this activity, learners use a toaster to generate wind and compare the appliance's heat source to Jupiter's own hot interior. Learners discover that convection drives wind on Jupiter and on Earth.
In this activity, learners work in teams to investigate the composition of unseen materials using a variety of tools.
In this activity, learners help create and then navigate an outdoor course of the traditional "planets" (including dwarf planet Pluto), which are represented by small common objects.
