NASA-THE SOLAR SYSTEM
This 1-day workshop will provide awareness of educational resources that are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards. Participating educators will be introduced to activities that focus on some of the most common misconceptions regarding our solar system that are connected to the relative sizes and distances of the objects in our solar system. Participants will be engaged in inquiry-based activities to explore the geological processes on the Earth and other planets by observing and interpreting satellite photography and using the data to explain the geological features.
The STEM activities are an effective, innovative way to engage students in the project-based learning process, encourage their interest in space exploration, and inspire them to pursue a career in the STEM areas.
This workshop will also include a facility tour on the grounds of NASA Glenn Research Center in the afternoon, which will consist of two tour stops and a visit to the exchange store.
