Deep Space Gateway

Grades 6-8
Three 45-60-minute class periods

As "planetary research scientists" with NASA'sSolar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI), your students will research and analyze potential solutions to establishing a lunar base. Then they will write about their best solution for getting a base on the Moon.

Long-Endurance Space Flight

Grades 6-8
Three 45- to 60-minute class periods

As "in-training members of NASA's mission control staff", your students will explore scale, proportion, time, and distance to understand potential problems of long-endurance space flights. They will also research the effects on astronauts and communications. Then they will write a statement on how NASA should address the challenges.
