Spacecraft Design for Interplanetary Travel part of Earth and Space Science:Summer 2011:Activities
Student groups will design and build a model spacecraft to travel to one of the planets within our solar system. Using internet resources to research the hazards of space travel and special features of their assigned planet, students will use common household items and recycled materials to build their space vehicle. An accompanying Power Point or video presentation will explain the unique features of each group's design. Teams will present their model and slide show/video to the rest of the class as a culminating activity. [image Spacecraft Design (Microsoft Word 2007 (.docx) 463kB Jul29 11) right border]
