Impact Traveling Exhibit
Aerobus traveling exhibit contains a theatre featuring
videos related to NASA's efforts to reduce the
impact of aeronautic propulsion on the environment
software lets students and educators study how
pressure, temperature, and density change throughout
the atmosphere, by demonstrating how those variables
effect the gauges of an airplane.
|Beginner's Guide to Aeronautics
about how airplanes fly, including the forces
that lift them off the ground, keep them in the
air, and help them land.
|Beginners Guide to Propulsion
interactive website serves as a guide to how jet
engines work. Activities, data, and engine simulations
are available for teachers and students.
learn about the principles of aerodynamics by
controlling the conditions of a big league baseball
can manipulate variables to design and test engines
to see what is most efficient. This software fosters
hands on inquiry-based learning in science and
math by simulating jet engine tests and the effects
that engines have on the speed and range of aircraft.
|Foil Sim II
software fosters hands-on inquiry-based learning
by computing the theoretical lift of a variety
of airfoil shapes. The user can control the shapes,
size, and inclination of a wing, and test their
decisions in a simulated wind tunnel.
KAAMS teacher website supplies problem based learning
opportunities that get students involved in authentic
aeronautics-based remote-sensing missions conducted
by NASA scientists.
program helps students design and study the flight
of a kite. Kites with different lengths, widths,
and materials can be designed and tested with
variable wind speeds and control lines. The aerodynamic
forces on the kite, and the stability of the design
are computed by this software.
|Learning Technologies Project
project helps integrate NASA research and technology
into the K-14 curriculum through web-based resources,
computer simulations, and videoconferences. Many
ready-made lesson plans, activities, and experiments
that deal with the science of aerodynamics are
|Mobile Aeronautics Education
mobile state-of-the-art Aeronautics Education
Laboratory brings new technologies to partnership
cities to excite students about science and math.
Visitors can experience 10 hands-on workstations
that model real world aviation chK-16enges like
weather forecasting, flight design, airfoil design,
and flight controls.
Observatorium is a public access website that
explores how airplanes are used as platforms for
experimentation and remote sensing. Pictures of
the earth, stars, and planets are available.
Games presents a variety of multiple-choice math
and physics problems involving aircraft performance.
Students must answer questions about range, fuel
usage, acceleration, velocity and location during
Rocket Modeler lets students and educators design
and study the flight of a model rocket. This program
computes the stability of your design and flight
trajectory while K-16owing the user to vary the
number and size of fins and materials used.
|The Wright Way
about the development of the first manned, powered
flight from its conception through research and
experimentation, to success and beyond. This website
features facts, lesson plans, simulations, activities,
and contains information on how to participate
in the Centennial of Flight Celebration.
interactive website, designed to teach decision
making and problem-solving skills, guides students
through an exploration of the world of aeronautics.
Learn the principles of flight, flight planning,
see large wind tunnels in operation, consider
career options, and more.
|Wind Tunnel Teacher's Guide
major parts of a wind tunnel are described, and
animation is used to demonstrate how they operate.
This guide provides a classroom activity in which
a teacher can design their own wind tunnel.
|Wright Flyer Online
about a full-sized replica of the 1903 Wright
Flyer. Students can follow the trailing vortex
as it is tested in a NASA wind tunnel.
