Newton's Laws of Motion: Lunar Nautics

This web seminar featured three lessons for grades 5-8 that focus on a conceptual, real-world understanding of Newton's Laws of Motion and address common misconceptions associated with the laws. During the program, educators received an overview for each of the activities, information about materials required to do the activities, and watched a video clip showing how teachers have introduced these lessons to their students.

  • 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.
