A Place in Space
The students will use a "real" 3D coordinate system. They will have 3 axes at right angles, and a plane (the XY plane) that will be able to slide up and down the Z axis. The students will then be given several coordinates and asked to find these points in space. They will also be asked to find the coordinates of the 8 corners of a box with given dimensions.

Lunch in Outer Space!
Students learn about the unique challenges astronauts face while eating in outer space. They explore different food choices and food packaging. Students learn about the engineering design process, and then, as NASA engineering teams, they design and build original model devices to help astronauts eat in a microgravity environment --- their own creative devices for food storage and meal preparation.

Space coupe to the rescue
For this online activity, students raise and lower their Space Coupe to line it up and destroy virus pods using positive or negative numbers. The challenge is to destroy all eight virus pods within a given time. Negative numbers take the Coupe in a downward direction, sometimes below the waterline, while positive numbers take the Coupe in an upward direction, including out of the water and into the air. The distance the ship needs to travel to destroy each pod is counted using a scale on the lef

America's Space Program: Exploring a New Frontier
tells the story of America's journey to the moon. The creation of NASA, the Apollo vehicles, and the January 1967 tragedy are part of the story. On July 20, 1969, as the Eagle lunar module approached the moon, it became clear that the computer had chosen an unacceptable landing site -- a boulder-strewn crater. With 114 seconds of fuel left, astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin overrode the computers and manually landed the Eagle.
