STEAM - Educational Experience
The theme for 2019 National Science Week is Destination Moon: more missions, more science,
This theme is a way for teachers and their students to discover past missions to the Moon and space programs that have solved some of the seemingly unsolvable problems—and current and future space programs, operations and missions. Many of these use big picture thinking in science to solve problems, and technology, engineering and mathematics to design new solutions. This will help forge our future paths in the areas of space operations, space science, Earth observations, positioning systems and communications.
We have created an easy but stunning DIY Moon activity that will be sure to get the entire classroom involved, featured in the Term 3 edition of edextras: your inspiration publication.
How high can you make your edextras rocket ship go? How does the angle you launch your rocket affect the distance it travels? Explore principles of mathematics and physics with this hands on activity from the latest Term 3 edition of edextras: your inspiration publication.
This activity is a great activity to try in your centre to promote STEAM based learning.
