Human Body: Space Adaptations
This web seminar took place on April 15, 2014, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. eastern
daylight time. The presenter was Marti Phipps, NASA
Explorer Schools Education Specialist at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In this
program Ms. Phipps talked about a series of integrated activities that investigate
the impacts of spaceflight on the human body.
This was the second presentation of Human Body: Space Adaptations for the 2013-14
school year. In this seminar Ms. Phipps discussed the effects of microgravity on
astronauts' bodies. She shared detailed strategies for implementing three lessons
targeted toward elementary and middle school students: O2…How Much?, Bag of Bones,
and Get a Leg Up. Participants learned about required materials, procedures, data
collection methods, and extensions. They also found out how to access a wealth of
online resources related to the lessons, including videos and the educator guide.
