Center of Mass and Center of Pressure: Engineering a Stable
In this web seminar educators learned how to incorporate the excitement of rocketry into the classroom. They received details about a student activity that addresses forces and motion, center of mass, and center of pressure. Participants got an overview of the activity, explored the NASA connections, and learned tips and tricks for implementing this lesson in the classroom. They also watched videos of students engaged in the lesson and discussed possible modifications or extensions.
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. For additional information about the NASA
