Educators in Grades K-12

The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

Participants will get an overview of Bernoulli's Principle and how it relates to Flight while using NASA's Museum in the Box curriculum. There will be hands-on, standards aligned mathematics, science and engineering activities about Bernoulli's Principle that participants can take back to their classrooms.  Real world connections with NASA and the airplanes that do weather research will be discussed as we highlight various NASA Aeronautics missions. Leave with a classroom ready PowerPoint that works great for an in-person, at home or virtual presentation.

NASA’s Museum in a Box program brings the physical sciences of flight alive to students in grades K-12 using interactive activities. Each lesson is centered around aeronautics with a goal to inspire future scientist, mathematicians and engineers. The content inside Museum in a Box may be used by educators to supplement curriculum during the school day or as activities for after school programs/clubs. 

The Museum in a Box program contain activities for three grade groups: K-4, 5-8, and 9-12.

This educational activity aligns to NASA Education API 2.4.2 - Continue to support STEM educators through the delivery of NASA education content and engagement in educator professional development opportunities.
