Messenger: Cooling With Sunshades
Participants of this web seminar learned how to implement the exciting NASA lesson,
Cooling with Sunshades. The MESSENGER mission to Mercury provides a great engineering
challenge because of the high-temperature environment in which the spacecraft operates.
Seminar attendees learned how to bring this NASA mission to life in the classroom
by guiding students in designing and constructing their own sunshades similar to
the equipment used on the MESSENGER spacecraft.
This web seminar is part of a series of electronic professional development experiences
sponsored by the NASA Explorer Schools (NES) project. NES is NASA's classroom-based
gateway for middle school (grades 4-8) and high school (grades 9-12) classrooms
providing authentic learning experiences inspired by NASA's unique missions. NES
provides free teaching and learning resources that promote student engagement in
science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and opportunities for teachers
and students to participate in NASA's mission of research and discovery through
inquiry-based experiences directly related to the work of NASA scientists and engineers.
