Learn how engineers turn perspiration into innovation on the International Space Station so astronauts can live and work comfortably. The Environmental Control and Life Support System, or ECLSS, regulates the environment, including temperature, humidity and breathable air.
Elementary students (grades K-5) learn more about Our World through the power of video segments. Through NASAs lens, the segments compare the natural world with the designed world, illustrating the ways to make the most of this world while propelling us into new worlds. This program is designed to supplement existing elementary learning objectives not only in STEM, but also in reading, writing, and visual and performing arts.
Middle school students (grades 6-8) explore mathematics in action through Real World. These video segments connect classroom mathematics to 21st-century careers and innovations. Learning experiences are aligned with middle school mathematics standards of learning, and are designed for students to develop an appreciation for mathematics through real-world problem solving.
High school students ignite their interest in science and engineering through NASA innovations in Launchpad. Video segments support project-based and problem-based learning experiences in science, mathematics, and career and technical education classrooms.
