## Out of Sight - Remote Vehicle Activity

Using remote control cars and other materials, learners will simulate the experience of trying to operate a planetary rover and working as a team to address challenges and meet a common goal. Student information sheets and worksheets as well as websites for additional information are included.

## Ice Sheets and Sea Level

In this exercise, learners use basic arithmetic to determine the amount that sea level would rise around the globe with the melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. Basic data for this calculation is provided.

## The Cycle of Matter

This is a lesson where learners trace the path that atoms take as they change form and move throughout the cycle of matter and compare this to the flow of energy.

## Light Travel Time and the Size of Active Galaxies

Using real data from NASA's Fermi satellite, students determine the size and energy of an active galaxy flare region. This activity includes background information for teachers, student worksheets, procedures, adaptations, extensions, an assessment rubric, and related resources.

## IBEX Electronic Resource for Museum Educators

This material is a comprehensive educational resource for informal educators highlighting the major mission information and science background for the Interstellar Boundary Explorer mission, a Small Explorer Earth-orbiting spacecraft that is designed to map the distant boundary between the solar

## Gravitational Waves

The purpose of this lesson is to model for students gravitational waves and how they are created. Students will build a simple "Gravitational Wave Demonstrator" using inexpensive materials (plastic wrap, plastic cups, water, food coloring, and rubber bands, marbles).

## Investigating the Insides

Leaners will investigate the composition of unseen materials using a variety of tools - a process that mimics how scientists discover clues about the interiors of planets with cameras and other instruments onboard spacecraft. This activity is part of Explore!

## Our Very Own Star: the Sun

This is a storybook about the Sun. Learners will read or hear about the Sun, its relationship to Earth, and how the Sun can affect Earth.

## Scientific Notation

In this activity students convert antilogs to logs, and logs to antilogs using scientific notation as an intermediate step. They will thereby develop a look-up table for solving math problems by using logarithms. This is activity D2 in the "Far Out Math" educator's guide.

## Studying Light: Seeing the Invisible

This is a lesson about the electromagnetic spectrum. Learners begin by arranging a set of picture cards; in the discussion afterwards, this activity is related to the electromagnetic spectrum as an arrangement of energy waves.
