The Ohio STEM Learning Network proudly announces a new collaboration between science non-profit Battelle and NASA—Next Gen STEM: Space from a Distance. At https://nextgenstem.battelle.org, explore NASA’s standards-aligned, hands-on STEM activities and then join us for an informational webinar on 12/9/2020 to learn how to qualify for a free STEM crate with supplies for 30 students.
Starting next year on February 1st, https://nextgenstem.battelle.org will feature standards-aligned design challenges designed for K-12 by NASA professionals. Each week will focus on a different piece of NASA’s mission – STEM on Station, Moon to Mars, Commercial Crew, and Aeronaut-X – providing accessible resources to you and your students in person or virtually. Each week, we’ll help you guide your students through the engineering design process, participate in hands-on-STEM activities, and learn about NASA careers from the professionals themselves.
Each day of the week is themed after a step in the design cycle, starting with #NASAMakerMonday and #NASATestItTuesday, and culminating in #NASAFeedbackFriday. Students will complete a prototype on Monday, iterate on their design, learn about careers at NASA from NASA’s own STEM Stars, then submit their designs.
NASA professionals designed these activities to demonstrate out-of-this-world concepts with everyday materials – explore the website to see for yourself!
Join us for an informational webinar about NASA Next Gen STEM: Space from a Distance on Wednesday, December 9th. During this session, you will learn about the program, how to implement it into your classroom (in-person or virtual), and find out how to receive one of 100 supply crates to help you implement hands-on STEM with 30 students.
