  63. 63. Build a shock-absorbing system that will protect two "astronauts" when they land. Follow the engineering design process to design and build a shock-absorbing system out of paper, straws, and mini-marshmallows; attach the shock absorber to a cardboard platform; and improve the design based on testing results. Touchdown!

  65. 65. • After creating a UV kid from chenille sticks and UV beads, design and test clothing or other protection from the Sun’s ultraviolet light. • Use to connect concepts: • Conducting science—creating a hypothesis and testing it • Just like we need to keep ourselves safe from sunburn, astronauts need to protect themselves from radiation in space • Our Earth’s atmosphere helps to shield us from some radiation • Other ideas and connections? UV Kid
  66. 66. Children work in pairs to measure each other's ankles with lengths of string before and after lying on their backs with their feet in the air for 1 minute. Measure Up Experiment and discuss: • If astronauts don’t have gravity pulling fluids down to their feet, how will that change their bodies during space flight? • How can you modify this experiment? • What health effects might we expect from the changes in fluids in space?
  67. 67. Implementation Discussion Collaboration/Reflection • How can you use any of the activities/ presentation content from today in your programs/activities? • What barriers may present themselves? How can you modify activities to suit your needs? • Do you have suggestions for your colleagues? • Are there ways you can partner with others?
