Shoot for the Moon and Beyond With Cube Quest Challenge (University Students)
NASA is inviting additional teams to compete in the Cube Quest Challenge. You can still participate in the in-space phase of the challenge and be eligible to win part of a $4.5 million prize purse.
Take Pictures of Earth Using a Camera on the Space Station
Sally Ride EarthKAM allows participants to take pictures of Earth from space using a camera aboard the International Space Station. Use EarthKAM as a teaching tool to study subjects ranging from geography to art to meteorology. During the July 14-17, 2020 mission, you can learn how the system works and to start planning ways to incorporate EarthKAM into the school year. Register to participate now.
Mars Rover Game: Play Explore Mars!
Drive around the Red Planet and gather information in this fun coding game!
Activities for NASA’s Summer of STEM: NASA EXPRESS for July 2, 2020
This week's Express can help you keep your family engaged this summer with #NASAatHome STEM learning activities, opportunities and design challenges. Parents, students and teachers can join one or several webinars, webchats and forums with NASA and STEM experts. Learn about the launch of the next Mars rover happening this summer. Read the EXPRESS and subscribe to learn ways people of all ages can get involved with NASA & its partners today.
This summer, the Mars 2020 rover, Perseverance, will launch to explore the Red Planet. Perseverance has six wheels that will help the rover drive across the Martian terrain. How might wheels for future Mars rovers look? Students can design a rover wheel and then send their ideas. Students can create a digital 3D model or a sketch of the reinvented wheel and write a short description of the design. Out-of-this world entries will receive a NASA gold star in the challenge gallery. Due July 26.
NASA.gov brings you the latest images, videos and news from America's space agency. Get the latest updates on NASA missions, watch NASA TV live, and learn about our quest to reveal the unknown and benefit all humankind.
Launching to Mars is hard -- and in these times, even harder -- but NASA’s Perseverance rover team has met the challenge. Help us get ready for the upcoming launch by taking part in a global, collective #CountdownToMars.

Students make temporary kaleidoscopes to find that when three rectangular mirrors of the same size are arranged in an equilateral triangle, rays of light from an object form multiple images due to reflections from the mirrors. This activity includes instructions to build a large kaleidoscope using PVC pipe. STEM activities. Optics lessons. Physical science lessons.
Here are ways to have fun while you learn about Mars and the Perseverance rover's mission that launches summer of 2020. Use household items to make rockets, rovers, lander and even volcanos. Program a video game to land a helicopter on Mars like the helicopter that is traveling with the rover. Watch videos to learn about the Red Planet. Activities for all ages.
