In this activity, learners imagine what the world might look like if we could build an elevator to space! After viewing some artist illustrations of possible space elevators, learners imagine what our future world might be like if it were possible to take an elevator into space. Learner draw and talk about what they image, while reflecting on and discussing several suggested questions in the activity guide. The activity makes connections to the field of nanotechnology through the possibilities of nanomaterials changing our future, and how people’s values shape how nanotechnologies are developed and adopted. Step-by-step instructions are included with photos along with safety recommendations. Activity guide includes a "What's going on?" explanation and quick connections to space exploration and super strong, lightweight carbon nanotubes.
