Students build a spectrometer using basic materials as a model for how NASA uses spectroscopy to determine the nature of elements found on Earth and other planets.
Students develop a model to represent the collision of two black holes, the gravitational waves that result and the waves' propagation through spacetime.
Students learn about cloud types to be able to predict inclement weather. They will then identify areas in the school affected by severe weather and develop a solution to ease the impacts of rain, wind, heat or sun.
This visual math problem set gives students a chance to use the mathematical constant pi with some of the real calculations space explorers use every day.
