On the Moon Guide

On the Moon Guide

Design Squad, a program of WGBH Boston and a Noyce Foundation grantee, has partnered with NASA to publish a guide to help increase student interest in NASA missions. Created for teachers and facilitators in science classrooms and afterschool programs, the On the Moon (47 pages, PDF) guide contains six engineering-related projects for students, including designing an air-powered rocket and building a solar-powered hot water heater. The guide also includes a section of educational standards to help educators match the projects to a students' school curriculum.
