NASA/NSTA Web Seminars:

National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Problem Solving: Transportation and Space--Reuse and Recycle

During this web seminar, physical science educators received background information on some of NASA's abandoned space resources, then learned about a technology-based classroom activity that requires students to spend time researching the abandoned materials and developing a business plan for a lunar colony. The lesson encourages students to think about space exploration as an activity in which humans “live off the land” and use all available resources, whether natural or man-made.


This web seminar is part of a series of electronic professional development experiences sponsored by the NASA Explorer Schools (NES) project. NASA Explorer Schools invests in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics educators to inspire and engage a whole generation of future scientists, engineers and technicians that NASA needs to continue our journey. NES gives educators of grades 4-12 free access to NASA’s people, missions, research, and facilities. We take the work out of searching through thousands of materials on the NASA website and provide a comprehensive set of teaching materials for dozens of STEM concepts.
