Aerospace Activities and Lessons

Glenn
Research
Center

A wide variety of aerospace activities and lesson plans have been generated by active teachers, educators, and NASA engineers and scientists. These activities are sponsored by the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate from NASA HQ, through the Educational Programs Office at NASA Glenn. Many of the activites were developed for the Learning Technologies Project at NASA Glenn. The activities are organized into four major groups:

  • Activites developed at teacher workshops in 1998, 1999, and 2000. These activities are related to FoilSim, EngineSim, and the Beginner's Guides to Propulsion, and Aerodynamics. Most of these activities are intended for high school students (9-12) although there some activities noted for younger students (K-6), (6-8).
  • Activites developed to support the Centennial of Flight Celebration in 2003. These activities include plans for building scale models of the Wright Brother's aircraft from 1900, 1901, 1902, and 1903 using meat trays and toothpicks. There are also plans to build your own wind tunnel. Most of these activities are aimed at middle school students (6-8). These activities are accessed at the Wright Way web site and the UEET Kid's Page.
  • Activites developed at teacher workshops in 1996 and 1997 as part of the Learning Technologies Project. These activities are now linked to information pages within the Beginner's Guides to Aerodynamics, Propulsion, and Model Rockets. These activities are generally aimed at younger students (K-8).
  • Activites involved with model and bottle rocketry. Some of these activites are drawn from the "Rockets Activity Guide, EG-108". These on-line activities are now linked to information pages within the Beginner's Guides to Model Rockets. These activities are generally aimed at younger students (K-8).
