Lunar Nautics: Designing a Mission to Live and Work on the Moon
All web seminar participants use online tools that allow them to mark-up presenter's slides or share desktop applications in addition to engaging in chat with others online and answering poll questions

This program showed teachers how they can guide students in designing, testing, and analyzing data related to living and working in space. Participants learned about Lunar Nautics, an exciting hands-on module targeted to students in grades 5-8. The module features lessons focused on a conceptual, real-world understanding of Newton's laws and addresses common misconceptions associated with the laws.


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.
