In this illustrated math problem, students use the mathematical constant pi to find the "habitable zone" around a distant star and determine which of its planets are in that zone.
In this challenge, students must program a rover to get from point A to point B on a map without driving across any of the craters located between the two points.
Students build a model that demonstrates an important contributor to sea-level rise – how water volume increases when the temperature of the water increases.
Students design a robotic insect for an extraterrestrial environment, then compare the process to how NASA engineers design robots for extreme environments like Mars.
In this illustrated problem set, students use pi to compare the sizes of Mars landing areas, calculate the length of a year for a distant solar system object, measure the depth of the ocean from an airplane, and determine the diameter of a debris disk.
