In this activity, students examine their concepts of a comet by designing and building a model. The goal is to have students replicate the scientific processes of observing, modeling, forming an explanation, making new observations, and revising. In this manner, students have the opportunity to emulate the experience of scientific discovery that makes science so exciting. Younger students will learn ... Full description.

This product illustrates how scientists learn about the composition of an asteroid by studying energy and neutrons that emanate from it. The Dawn spacecraft contains three instruments -- the Gamma Ray and Neutro Detector (GRaND), the Visible Infrared Spectrometer, and the Framing Camera -- that will provide answers to questions about the formation and evolution of the early solar system.
