This World Space Week, blast off to the International Space Station with a free download of our Liftoff: Engineering Rockets and Rovers unit. In this unit you and your students will learn about the trade-offs and variables involved in engineering a rocket or space rover as you complete a real-life challenge ideal for students in grades 3-5.
As part of our partnership with NASA, the Liftoff unit features eight 45-minute activities for students to explore and learn about the engineering skills needed to explore planets and moons in our universe.
Take a peek: Jacob is at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory learning how to engineer rovers that can be used to explore faraway worlds. Meanwhile, India is learning about the trade-offs and variables involved in engineering a rocket as she blasts off to the International Space Station. With the Liftoff: Engineering Rockets and Rovers Unit, kids will engineer rockets and rovers to help India and Jacob explore several planets and moons in our solar system.
