NGSS promotes hands-on learning for all students through inquiry based lessons. Microgravity can be a difficult concept for students of all levels, but through hands-on activities, they can gain a better understanding of the topic. Participants in this workshop will explore effective ways to teach microgravity, science on the International Space Station, and STEM activities-NASA style.
