STRAND: Integrating Multiple Learning Experiences and Connecting to Move Forward

Show Details

Use each stage of the Engineering Design Process to complete a team challenge of building and launching a satellite while making connections to NASA missions.

TAKEAWAYS:
Participants will learn about and use the engineering design process to build and perform a drop test of a satellite using NASA’s BEST activities. Educators will learn how to integrate the process skills of measuring, calculating, designing and evaluating while teaching the engineering design process. Make real-life connections to how NASA engineers use the engineering design process and work as teams to accomplish their mission goals.

SPEAKERS:
Barbie Buckner (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center: Greenbelt, MD)

STRAND: Integrating Multiple Learning Experiences and Connecting to Move Forward

Show Details

Learn about the launch lab where s chemistry professor and preservice STEM teachers engaged high schoolers in a summer program filled with experiences centered on aviation.

TAKEAWAYS:
Participants will: 1. learn about collaboration between preservice and inservice teachers and university STEM content experts in designing and facilitating lab experiences for high school students to engage in hands on inquiry; 2. learn about the planning process that maximized the collaboration between different stakeholders at the college, community college, high school, and district levels to ensure student participants could access, engage with, and learn effectively about the aviation concepts and related math and engineering skills; and 3. experience a truncated version of the launch lab and learn about what the students experienced and the reflections of the educators.

SPEAKERS:
Jennifer Cuddapah (Hood College: Frederick, MD), Chris Stromberg (Hood College: Frederick, MD)

How does toxic ammonia from fish waste end up serving as a nitrogen source for plants? Attend this informative session to learn about aquaponics.

TAKEAWAYS:
How the nitrogen cycle influences both plant and fish health. How to use a modular design philosophy to allow students to innovate and create an aquaponics system in the classroom. How to incorporate Virginia's Trout in the Classroom program into your aquaponics system.

Let’s make a pocket solar system scroll. Come learn how to apply ratios to create a scale model of the planets based on your height.

TAKEAWAYS:
With a properly scaled solar system scroll, participants will identify inner and out planets and readily SEE why they are named as such (ESS1, ESS2). Understanding the concept of rations and fractions, part-to-whole, participants will leave being able to create a proportional solar system in their classroom, on a football field, or across their state. This activity takes unique NASA content, places it in context within the curriculum, and makes applications beyond the solar system that include scientific inquiry and scientific discovery while using mathematics to show proportions and relate to the overall structure of our solar system (ETS2)

Show Details

Explore caloric and nutritional values of space food. Discover a menu of inquiry activities/resources to integrate into the classroom to satisfy your STEM appetite.

TAKEAWAYS:
Explore NASA STEM activities that investigate space food and nutrition for astronauts living on the Space Station. Construct sample space food menus to develop a better understanding of nutrition for human space exploration. Make connections between math, science, nutrition and exercise while exploring the impact of living in space and in our gravity filled environment here on earth.
