In this small-group activity, learners assume the roles of pilots, air traffic controllers, and NASA scientists to solve five Air Traffic Control (ATC) problems. Learners examine different distance...

\$5 - \$10 per group Ages 8 - 18 1 to 7 days
• Science Friday
In this activity, learners watch a video to learn about a couple who built a home out of shipping containers in Brooklyn, New York. Next, learners design and build a 3D scale model of a shipping...

1 cent - \$1 per student Ages 11 - 18 10 to 30 minutes

In this activity, learners discover how NASA engineers develop experimental aircraft. Learners will use geometry and algebra to design, construct, and test an experimental wing to achieve maximum...

\$10 - \$20 per group Ages 11 - 14 1 to 2 hours
• PBS
In this math lesson, learners design an experiment to model a leaky faucet and determine the amount of water wasted due to the leak. Using the data they gather in a table, learners graph and write...

• PBS
In this math lesson, learners determine and compare the rate of descent of various learner-constructed parachutes. Learners construct parachutes that will have maximum hang times. Learners then...

\$1 - \$5 per group Ages 11 - 14 45 to 60 minutes
• The Exploratorium
In this activity, learners investigate the relative growth of lengths, areas, and volumes as cylinders are scaled up. Learners connect their experience with cylinders to the world outside the...
