This page contains all of the links you will need to implement exciting
math, science, and engineering lessons and activities in grades 5-12.
In addition to these materials, you may also want to engage your
students with a PSA Design Challenge.
The main concepts that will be covered in the online interactive
and classroom lessons are the following:
- Systems consist of parts that are interconnected and work together
in some way.
- Changes in speed or direction of motion of an object
are caused by forces.
- When a force is applied to an object it
accelerates in the same direction as the force.
- When the force
on an object is zero, it remains at rest or moves with a constant
- Properties of surface areas and volumes change disproportionately
when linear dimensions change.
These lessons are separated into middle school and high school levels.

In order to make the most of the inquiry-based activities being developed,
you may want to familiarize yourself with some concepts involved
in space-based robotics. Here are some links to useful background
