The “Dynamic Response of the Environments at Asteroids, the Moon, and moons of Mars,” or DREAM2, team at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center is hosting a free workshop for educators of students in grades 6-9. Participants will learn how our understanding of Earth’s moon, asteroids and the moons of Mars is growing and changing with new data and models from current and recent planetary missions and the work of the DREAM2 team.
Workshop participants will reinforce their understanding of lunar and planetary science concepts; gain tools to help address common student misconceptions about the moon; and interact with NASA scientists who study the dynamic environments surrounding these rocky objects. Participants will work with real scientific data and learn how to bring the data and information to their students using hands-on activities aligned with Next Generation Science Standards for grades 6-9.
The workshop will take place July 11-15, 2016, at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Workshop participants will become certified to borrow meteorite samples from NASA and will receive Certificates of Participation and Letters of Completion that indicate 30 hours of instruction.
