Lesson Plan: For the Mission

This lesson will guide you in implementing the live simulation on mission day. The mission is a student-centered, team-based, interactive educational experience that uses scientifically accurate data to solve problems. You run the simulation in your own classroom through the Internet using a small video camera, or you use nearby distance learning labs. The classroom is connected with a mission director from NASA who guides the problem-solving activities to a successful conclusion.
