Vector Addition: Math and Science @ Work — Lunar Surface Instrumentation

During this web seminar, educators learned how to use a hypothetical scenario to get your students to apply their knowledge of vectors to a lunar instrument-servicing mission. educators received information and tools to help you engage your students and relate the lesson to their background knowledge. During the web seminar, educators also collaborated with other participants about ways to adapt and modify the problem so that it addresses multiple concepts and sets students for success.


This web seminar was 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.
