Session Detail

Using Space Exploration and NASA Activities in the Classroom

In this two-part series of workshops, we learn how to use students' curiosity about space exploration to introduce STEM concepts that can lead to inquiry learning, project-based learning and cross-curricular lessons applicable to all grade levels.  Attend one or both sessions.

  • They Drink What?   September 22, 2022
  • Rockets!!!                October 4, 2022


Important Session Information:

Explore the world of rocketry!  Learn the history of rockets, the role they've played in history, the scientific principles used to launch and control rockets and the current state of rocket technology.  We will give guidance to adapt the material for all grade levels and provide connections to the social sciences.  Participants will construct several types of rockets, including a simple model rocket.  Participants will also receive a model rocket, a launch pad and a controller included in the workshop cost.  The workshop will culminate with a rocket launch, weather permitting.  Register by Sept. 20 to ensure materials are available! (Registration is still possible after Sept. 20, but we cannot guarantee the rocketry materials will be available.)
Registration ends at 9:00 AM on Tuesday, October 4, 2022
