Bring NASA lessons into your classroom with Space from a Distance

The STEMx network proudly announces a new collaboration between science non-profit  Battelle  and  NASA Next Gen STEM: Space from a Distance. At , explore  NASA’s standards-aligned, hands-on STEM activities  and then  join us for an informational webinar on 12/9/2020  to learn how to qualify for a free STEM crate with supplies for 30 students.

Starting next year on February 1 st  will feature standards-aligned design challenges designed for K-12 by NASA professionals. Each week will focus on a different piece of NASA’s mission – STEM on Station, Moon to Mars, Commercial Crew, and Aeronaut-X – providing accessible resources to you and your students in person or virtually. Each week, we’ll help you guide your students through the engineering design process, participate in hands-on-STEM activities, and learn about NASA careers from the professionals themselves.

Each day of the week is themed after a step in the design cycle, starting with  #NASAMakerMonday  and  #NASATestItTuesday , and culminating in  #NASAFeedbackFriday . Students will complete a prototype on Monday, iterate on their design, learn about careers at NASA from NASA’s own STEM Stars, then submit their designs.

NASA professionals designed these activities to demonstrate out-of-this-world concepts with everyday materials –  explore the website to see for yourself !

Join us for an informational webinar about NASA Next Gen STEM: Space from a Distance on Wednesday, December 9 th . During this session, you will learn about the program, how to implement it into your classroom (in-person or virtual), and find out how to receive one of 100 supply crates to help you implement hands-on STEM with 30 students.
