Pilot-test NASA’s New “Smart Skies” Math/Science Materials (Grades 5-8)
You’re invited to apply to participate in a nationwide pilot-test of the “Smart Skies” standards-based math and science curriculum supplements developed by NASA/Ames for grades 5-8.
Your students will take on the roles of pilots, air traffic controllers, or NASA scientists to solve real-world air traffic control problems involving two planes flying on routes where a conflict may occur.
In each lesson, student teams conduct an interactive classroom flight experiment. The experiment is supported by student problem-solving worksheets featuring a variety of grade-appropriate mathematics methods (tables, graphs, or equations) for solving the airplane distance-rate-time problems.
All worksheets, lesson plans, and teacher guides will be available for you to download online.
When you complete the pilot-test, you’ll receive a special NASA gift award. Your class will receive a gift pack of NASA certificates, CD’s, posters, and more.
