Mars Perseverance Activity: Mud Splat CratersAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore the physics of impact craters from their own backyard using mud. Learners are encouraged to match features of real impact craters to their models.
Achieving OrbitAdd to list Details
In this Engineering Design Challenge activity, learners will use balloons to investigate how a multi-stage rocket, like that used in the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) mission, can propel a sat
Mission InsigniaAdd to list Details
In this science/art activity, learners create an insignia or emblem for a planet exploration mission.
Exploring the Solar System: Mission to Space Board Game
In this tabletop board game, players will represent a team of scientists and engineers sending a spacecraft on a mission to space.
Particle DetectionAdd to list Details
By tossing, collecting, and sorting beanbags, learners understand how the IBEX spacecraft uses its sensors to detect and map the locations of particle types in the interstellar boundary.
Mystery MatterAdd to list Details
This interactive demonstration reintroduces learners to three states of matter (solid, liquid, gas), and introduces them to a fourth state of matter, plasma.
Mars Perseverance Activity: AreologyAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners take core samples of candy bars with a straw and carefully observe & excavate their sample, modeled after what the NASA Perseverance rover will do on Mars.
Postcards from SpaceAdd to list Details
Using information from the My Place in Space lithograph, learners write and/or draw a postcard to friends and family as if they had gone beyond the interstellar boundary of our Solar System, into the
Four of the States of MatterAdd to list Details
This kinesthetic science demonstration introduces learners to four states of matter: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma.
Planet Exploration MissionAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners design a scientific exploration mission to a planet or moon of their choice.
