Gravity and Orbits

This short course explored concepts related to Earth’s universal gravitation and how gravity affects the universe around us. Participants learned about variables that influence the amount of gravitational force and how gravity governs the motion of the solar system. They gained access to NASA resources and discovered strategies for implementing inquiry-based instruction models. The instructor guided participants through easy-to-understand explanations and facilitated discussions that enhanced teacher knowledge of key concepts. Participants contributed to asynchronous weekly discussions and completed suggested reading assignments from NSTA's Gravity and Orbits SciPack, journal articles, and online NASA resources.
