Robonaut: Home - 0 views

  •  
    "The first humanoid robot in space was sent to the space station with the intention of eventually taking over tasks too dangerous or mundane for astronauts, and the first such task identified for it was monitoring air velocity. Astronauts onboard the space station generally have to measure the air flow in front of vents inside the station to ensure that none of the ventilation ductwork gets clogged or blocked. The task involves holding a gauge in front of vents in five different locations on the station and taking several measurements of the air flow every 90 days or so."

NASA - Mass vs. Weight Educator Guide - 1 views

  •  
    Mass Versus Weight Educator Guide -- Grades 5-8 Students often confuse the terms "mass" and "weight." Each activity in this series demonstrates the difference between mass and weight by comparing students' results with the results of astronauts aboard the space station. Students perform the activities and analyze their data. Then they watch video of astronauts performing similar demonstrations on the station. The activities focus on Newton's second law of motion.

NASA - Build the Station Simulation -- Educator Guide - 1 views

  •  
    Build the Station Simulation: Educator Guide -- Grades K-8 Just as five space agencies cooperated to build the International Space Station, students can work together to build a paper model of the world's largest orbiting laboratory. Teams take on the roles of international partners as they learn about and assemble portions of the model. During a mock summit, each team briefs the group about their section of the model. The teams then assemble the entire model to complete the space station. The guide includes student sheets, parts of the model, instructions for holding a summit, and facts about the station.
