Moon Science: Exploring the Moon
As part of our Backyard Summer STEAM Camp Program, we invited Green Kid Crafts members to submit their most burning questions. And many questions were about Outer Space and the Moon Science!
We’re hosting our Campside Chats with a Scientist on July 1st from 3pm to 3.30pm and our featured Scientist is Nikki Gonzales who works on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC)
Campside Chats and Summer Camp
Don’t miss the Campside Chats Event today and we’ll share the video back with you here afterward. And don’t forget to sign up for our Summer Camp to participate in our next Campside Chats with a Scientist Events!
An activity booklet with coloring pages, crossword puzzles, mazes, and more.
This supplemental guide suggests activities for connecting standards-based geometry concepts (area, volume, and proportion of two- and three-dimensional objects) to an actual NASA lunar mission.
The Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) will travel aboard the same launch vehicle as to the LRO. In early 2009, LCROSS will aim the spent Centaur upper stage of the launch vehicle at the permanently dark floor of one of the Moon’s polar craters to test the theory that ancient ice lies buried there. On this Moon Science exercise, students will design and build a launching device that will cause a projectile to excavate subsurface layers of lunar soil.
The design of this course is a creative problem-solving process. Students will design and build a lunar plant growth chamber using the engineering design process.
