Beginner's Guide to Propulsion Activities

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 following activities support the Beginner's Guide to Propulsion.

These lessons are arranged by subject, grade level, and creator. Teacher's are encouraged to click on the TEACHER hyperlink to obtain information concerning the learning standards addressed by each activity. Clicking on the STUDENT hyperlink will take you directly to the activity.
