Unit Overview

In this unit India and Jacob—a fictional world-traveling brother and sister duo—visit Antarctica to help engineer part of a space suit for a new NASA mission! India and Jacob guide kids through the engineering activities as they learn about space hazards and how astronauts protect themselves from extreme temperatures, impact, and dangerous dust. Kids work as materials engineers, considering the trade-offs of each material in their model space gloves to help astronauts complete one of three missions to an asteroid, Earth’s moon, and Mars.
