In this activity, the teacher will construct a "comet" from ingredients that closely resemble the substances which make up a real comet. A list of ingredients, materials, and instructions are provided. Students can watch the comet as it melts, releasing jets of carbon dioxide and becoming pitted with craters in much the same way as a real one. Full description.

In this activity, students create a model ocean over which "wind" will be blown, and observe the relationship between the wind and the resulting ocean surface currents. The activity reinforces the concept that surface currents in the ocean are mostly caused by wind. A materials list and instructions are provided, and links to a glossary are embedded in the text.

This tool was designed by NASA engineers to demonstrate and teach principles of microgravity and its relationship to science and math. Teachers may perform a series of demonstrations to provide a visual, physical connection between free-fall and microgravity conditions and to understand why certain experiments are performed under microgravity conditions.

Most satellite instruments look only straight down, or toward the edge of the planet. To fully understand Earth's climate, and to determine how it may be changing, we need to know the amount of sunlight that is scattered in different directions under natural conditions. The Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) is a new type of instrument, which is designed to address this issue. It views Earth ... Full description.
