On a red background, 3 artist's depictions of astronauts working on the moon span the center of the image. Bold white text reads, "NASA Exploration Experience Educator Guide."
NASA Exploration Experience Educator Guide
This guide contains two hands-on sections. The first section is the Engagement activity. This is a 45-minute activity where participants explore the constraints of spacesuit design and test a glove that can be used to perform work on the Moon. The second section is the Experience activity. It is a 3-hour experience which is broken up into three 1-hour phases. During the Experience, participants will create and modify a geological tool to collect rock samples on the lunar surface.
An image of a hand holding a s'more sandwich in front of a campfire. Bold yellow text reads, "Harness the Energy of the Sun to Make S'Mores!" Solar Oven, Math Lesson Plans, Fun Snacks, Nasa, Solar, Oven, Energy, Sun, Quick Saves
Make S'Mores with a Solar Oven!
Harness the energy of the Sun to make the best snack ever invented, S’mores! A solar oven is a box that traps some of the Sun’s energy to make the air inside the box hotter than the air outside the box. In other words, the solar oven is like a super greenhouse. In this activity, use simple househole items to make your own solar oven!

An artist's depiction of the X-59 airplane flies over a large city. The plane has a very long and narrow tip, which helps to reduce the noise created by the plane as it flies at very fast speeds. Bold white text reads, "Make Your Own X-59 Paper Airplane." Models, English, Aeroplanes, Waves, Speed Of Sound, Airplane, Boom, Make A Paper Airplane, Airplanes
Make Your Own X-59 Paper Airplane With NASA!
The X-59 airplane is designed to lower the noise created by planes flying faster than the speed of sound. When planes fly supersonic (faster than the speed of sound), the pressure waves they create combine together and produce a very loud noise called a sonic boom. This noise is so loud that it can damage property and disturb animals. In the Make Your Own X-59 activity, you will make a paper airplane version of the X-59! Available in both English and Spanish.
