For Educators: Use Our Space Exploration Curriculum
We partnered with Discovery Education to develop lesson plans, activities, and other resources for classroom and at-home learning:
- Explore the importance of weather and its impact on the go/no-go decision of the launch of a manned Orion mission.
- Solve real-world problems and encourage a deeper understanding of how space flight leads to innovation here on Earth.
- Extend classroom learning with activities designed for the family to complete together.
With your help, we can prepare and inspire this generation to reach new heights.
