Educator Workshop: The Math of NASA Missions

Loading Events

Target Audience: Teachers for grades 7-12

Overview: One of the recurring questions teachers get is, “When are we going to use this in real life?” In this session, we explore classroom lessons aligned to Common Core Math and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) that answer that question in exciting ways and get students engaged. We’ll explore virtual reality, JPL missions and how space science can enrich the content in your class to get students excited about math.
