Feedback form is now closed.
This is an inquiry based hands-on STEM challenge lesson.  All participants can learn from this experience regardless of level.  These activities are dynamic by nature and incorporate cooperative learning and exploration.  The activities are versatile and can be used as stand alones or incorporated into complex units.

In this STEM workshop session we will complete one Engineering Design Challenge and overview all of the BEST Teaching Guide. They will see inspirational videos from NASA to encourage students to consider STEM space careers.
The participants will be introduced to the NASA BEST program and all of its resources. The teachers will participate in a complete Engineering Design Challenge from video clips and inquiry activity to assessment and extensions.
Build a Satellite To Orbit the Moon Engineering Design Challenge:
Design and build a satellite that will orbit the moon. It must carry a combination of cameras, gravity probes, and heat sensors to investigate the Moon's surface. The satellite will need to pass a 1-meter Drop Test without any parts falling off of it.
The PowerPoint will be available to all participants. The PowerPoint will include all of the videos and activities including the tips and pointers.

The teacher's guide is available on line at no cost on http://www.nasa.gov/audience/foreducators/best/#.V8Q5k_krJhE Guides include all of the activities, material lists, Instructional strategies, protocols, tutorials, assessments and cross-curricular implementation.
