Students develop spreadsheet models that describe the relationship between the mass of a spacecraft using electric propulsion, the force acting on the spacecraft, and its acceleration.

In this activity, students will use sea-level rise data to create models and compare short-term trends to long-term trends. They will then determine whether sea-level rise is occurring based on the data.

Students build a model that demonstrates an important contributor to sea-level rise – how water volume increases when the temperature of the water increases.

In this activity, students use spreadsheet software and their knowledge of scale, proportion and ratios to develop a solar system model that fits on a playground.

In this standards-aligned unit, students learn about Mars, design a mission to explore the planet, build and test model spacecraft and components, and engage in scientific exploration.
