GENESIS: Exploring Data--A First Look
During this program, educators learned how to use data from NASA’s GENESIS mission.
About 4.6 billion years ago, the solar nebula transformed into the present solar
system. In order to chemically model the processes that drove that transformation,
scientists would like to have a sample of the original nebula to use as a baseline
from which they could track changes. The GENESIS sample-return mission was designed
to give them just such a baseline composition.
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.
