During the workshops attendees will not only learn how to make a satellite and a glider, but will also learn how to

  • facilitate problem based engineering design activities
  • teach the science behind flight and space exploration
  • align making activities with the standards

In these hands on workshops, the educators take on the role of learner to experience the curriculum and also have the opportunity to practice those new-found skills as a guest exhibitor at the NASA foam rockets booth!
