The Design of Discovery
Four Sites, One Terrific STEM Workshop
Presented by NASA's Discovery and New Frontiers Programs
Designing a mission to explore the solar system. Just what does it take? This workshop offers participants activities and experiences they can take back to their education programs, along with insight gained from presentations by dynamic engineers and scientists.
In Discovery's fifth annual multi-site professional development workshop, while we address the larger science questions that must drive any mission, we have a special focus on the engineering solutions associated with space explorations. Investigate what it takes to move a fantastic idea — like flying by an icon in the American imagination, Pluto, billions of miles from Earth, for the first time — from dream to reality. Explore science and engineering as human endeavor at its incredible best.
All Four Sites Include:
Hands-on, standards-aligned science and engineering activities and multimedia interactives
- For K-12 formal and informal educators
- Resource materials to take back to the classroom
- A flash drive containing curriculum and activities based on real mission science for all grade levels with links to great online interactives
- Posters, bookmarks, stickers and more!
