How To Fly In Space? Slingshot To The Moon!

How To Fly In Space? Slingshot To The Moon!

Brief description: Flying to the moon is tricky business, especially since you can’t just head in a direct line. How can you plan your trajectory to the moon?https://youtu.be/gdCmhx1A3CcLanguages available:This video contains subtitles in Arabic, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Swahili and Swedish, and they can […] Read More

Power from Water – How to produce oxygen and hydrogen on the Moon

Power from Water – How to produce oxygen and hydrogen on the Moon

Brief description: In this set of three activities, students will learn about electrochemistry. In the first activity, they will build a voltaic pile – a simple battery. This invention marked the beginning of electrochemistry. Students will then study electrolysis. Electrolysis uses electric current to split water into its components: hydrogen and oxygen. These products can […] Read More

Landing on the moon – Planning and designing a lunar lander

Landing on the moon – Planning and designing a lunar lander

Brief description: In this set of activities, students will plan, design and build a landing module to secure the survival of the crew (in the form of an egg-naut) landing on the Moon. They will explore which factors should be considered when landing on the Moon, in comparison to landing on Earth. In the design […] Read More

3… 2…1… Lift off! – Building your own paper rocket

Brief description: In this set of 3 activities, students will design and build their own paper rockets and launch them. They will learn what it takes in order for a rocket to be stable and they will calculate the rocket’s trajectory and velocity. They will learn about the velocity required to leave Earth in a […] Read More

Power from Sunlight – Powering space exploration with solar energy

Power from Sunlight – Powering space exploration with solar energy

Brief description: In this set of activities, students will learn about two concepts that influence solar panel design for space missions: the inverse square law and the angle of incidence. Students will perform two simple investigations using a photovoltaic cell (solar cell) and a light source. First, they will measure how the power produced by […] Read More

Moon Rover – Building a solar powered rover

Moon Rover – Building a solar powered rover

Brief description: In this activity, students will compare the advantages and disadvantages of renewable energy sources and non-renewable energy sources and study simple electrical circuits. Using the Moon as context, students will build a small motor and a solar cell. They will also identify the main features their rover must have in order to go […] Read More
