This is an activity about albedo, which is a measurement of the reflectance of a planetary surface. Learners will classify areas on an image in terms of albedo values and then sketch their own portion of an image from space. These sketches are assembled to view the larger image that the class or group has created. Full description.

This is an activity about communication. Starting first with the message attached to the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft, learners explore what might be put into a message to a presumed intelligent being who does not understand our language, symbols, culture, or how we exist. From this analysis, they decode a simulated message from space. This is Actividad 9.2 as part of El Universo a Sus Pies, a Spanish-language ... Full description.

This activity focuses on the relationship between science of looking for life and the tools, on vehicles such as the Mars Rover, that make it possible. Learners will create their own models of a Mars rover. They determine what tools would be necessary to help them better understand Mars (and something about life on Mars/its habitability). Then they work in teams to complete a design challenge where ... Full description.
