When Halloween rolls around at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, we really let our nerd flags fly. Pumpkin carving contests turn into serious engineering design challenges and costume inspiration runs the gamut from real science to science fiction.
This year, join us in all our geekdom with these spooky (and educational!) space activities from the Education Office at NASA/JPL:
Project: Create a Halloween Pumpkin Like a NASA Engineer
Get tips and inspiration for creating a stellar pumpkin from the same people who send spacecraft to other planets!
Slideshow: Mysteries of the Solar System and Beyond
Strange things are happening all around the solar system. See if you can solve these space mysteries before finding out how scientists did it.
NASA/JPL Edu supports science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education by providing NASA and JPL activities, resources and materials to
