National Space Day is Friday, May 6th! Every year, the first Friday in May is dedicated to celebrating the extraordinary achievements, benefits, and opportunities in the exploration of space. To join in the celebration, check out these activities  that show how science, engineering and math help us understand space! 

Explore our FREE, NASA-funded STEM resources for students in grades 3-8, such as: 

Our EVOLVE series, which includes videos about Mars rovers and climate change.

Making it to Mars: Perseverance — Learn about the ways this rover will 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.

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
