Explore Space With Our NASA Resources for International Science Museum Day!

Posted by EiE Team on Tuesday, November 9, 2021

In honor of International Science Museum Day, explore our suite of FREE, NASA-funded STEM resources for students in grades 3-8. Research-based and classroom-tested, these resources are designed to support students’ understanding of space, while helping them see themselves as capable problem solvers. 

Visit us, or your local science museum, on November 10 to celebrate in person!

Try some of these activities from EiE, Museum of Science to celebrate wherever you are.

For learners in grades 3-5, explore units such as ‘In Good Hands: Engineering Space Gloves’ and ‘The Sky’s the Limit: Engineering Flying Technologies.’

For 6-8 grade students, design remote sensing devices with ‘Remote Sensing: Worlds Apart’ and build water reuse systems with ‘Water Reuse: Testing the Waters

Plus, check out our video series about NASA technology, such as:

Making it to Mars: Perseverance — Learn about the ways this rover is going to help us learn more about Mars, test new technologies, set up future missions, and even help us prepare to send humans to the Red Planet.

These units would not have been possible without the support of our collaborators around the country. Since 2016, EiE has partnered with Northern Arizona University and the United States Geological Survey - Astrogeology Science Center to create space-themed engineering units for students in grades 3-8. Guided by the steps of the engineering design process, students are encouraged to think like engineers while solving real-world problems.
