Newton's Laws of Motion: Lunar Nautics
This web seminar took place on December 19, 2013, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. eastern
standard time. The presenter was Steve Culivan, Educator
Professional Development Specialist at NASA Stennis Space Center. In this program
Mr. Culivan shared three hands-on activities that give middle school students a
chance to experiment with Newton's Laws of Motion.
Mr. Culivan addressed common misconceptions associated with Newton's Laws of Motion.
He then connected the laws to NASA's mission to explore Mars with the Curiosity
lander. Participants got an in-depth look at three related lessons that help students
gain a real world understanding of these concepts.
