Educator Resource Showcase Webcast -- Spaced Out Sports

Join hosts Kelly Witherspoon and Cheryl Guilbeau from NASA's Stennis Space Center in Mississippi for an hourlong, free webcast on Dec. 14, 2011, at 3 p.m. EST. This webcast will focus on Newton's Laws of Motion and their effects on objects on Earth and in space.

“Spaced Out Sports” challenges students in grades 5-8 to apply Newton’s Laws of Motion by designing or redesigning a game for astronauts to play in space. The "Spaced Out Sports" workshop will highlight a variety of hands-on activities, brief demonstrations and video clips to help your students learn about Newton's Laws of Motion. A curriculum guide and game examples are available online. To learn more, visit http://education.ssc.nasa.gov/spacedoutsports.asp.
