Engineering Design Challenge: Lunar Plant Growth Chamber

In this web seminar participants discovered how to use exciting space exploration problems in their technology or life science classes. They learned strategies for guiding students in the engineering design process to design, build, and evaluate the effectiveness of a lunar plant growth chamber while engaging in research and standards-based learning experiences.


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.
