FOR EDUCATORS: USE OUR SPACE EXPLORATION CURRICULUM

 

We partnered with Discovery Education to develop lesson plans, activities, and other resources for classroom and at-home learning:

  • Explore the importance of weather and its impact on the go/no-go decision of the launch of a manned Orion mission.
  • Solve real-world problems and encourage a deeper understanding of how space flight leads to innovation here on Earth.
  • Extend classroom learning with activities designed for the family to complete together. 

With your help, we can prepare and inspire this generation to reach new heights.
