Newton's Laws of Motion: Lunar Nautics
This web seminar featured three lessons for grades 5–8 focusing on a conceptual, real-world understanding of Newton's laws of motion. Participating educators received an overview of each activity and learned strategies for addressing common misconceptions associated with the laws. Participants watched video clips that can help engage students with the lesson and shared their own ideas for implementing the activities in the classroom.
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. For additional information about the NASA
