The e-Mission is a student-centered, team-based, interactive educational experience that uses scientifically accurate data to solve problems. Your class will assemble as an emergency response team and then connect via technology to the Flight Director at Mission Control. All teams work together with Mission Control to handle the problem situation as the scenario unfolds. Every few minutes new data is received in the classroom via satellite and your teams perform calculations, create graphs, and assess the situation. The expert teams in your class then make recommendations to Mission Control based on their analysis.
On mission day your class will turn into a hub of activity as your students use teamwork, communication, and problem-solving skills to avoid disasters and save lives. Research indicates that this way of learning leads to improved critical thinking skills. The impact of this fast-paced, engaged learning environment will help you create lifelong learners in your classroom.
We have a variety of e-Mission packages available, so check out the websites below to select which one will best meet the needs of your class. Also, check the technology requirements for each e-Mission. For additional information about any of our e-Mission packages available, contact Laura Ondeck, Lead Flight of our e-Mission program.
