Engineering Design Process: On The Moon
This web seminar took place on January 29, 2014 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. eastern
standard time. The presenter was Sandra Kaszynski, NASA Education Specialist at
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In this program Ms. Kaszynski shared strategies
for implementing two activities from the On the Moon Educators Guide: “On Target”
and “Feel the Heat.”
This was the second presentation of Engineering Design Process: On the Moon for
the 2013-14 school year. In this seminar Ms. Kaszynski provided background information
about NASA’s explorations of the moon and talked about the connection to other research
on Earth and in space. She discussed the eight-step engineering design process,
emphasizing the cyclical nature and repeatability of the process. Then she showed
teachers how to implement two hands-on lessons that give students a chance to experiment
with space science concepts.

Here are some comments provided by the participants at the end of the web seminar:
- “Great web seminar!!! I enjoyed all the possibilities we can do with this activity.”
- “I definitely enjoyed the fact that I am leaving with two fairly quick engineering
activities I can use this year (and are already linked to standards!).”
Thanks to the participants and the presenter for the learning opportunity, the interactions,
and a job well done!
