On the Moon Educators Guide: On Target and Feel the Heat
This web seminar showcased two lessons from the On the Moon Educators Guide. Educators
learned how to use the On Target lesson to challenge students to design and test
a system and remote release that sends a cup carrying a marble down a zip line to
hit a target on the floor. Seminar participants also found out how to implement
Feel the Heat, an activity that challenges students to follow the engineering design
process to build and test a solar hot water heater.
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.
