After seven months in space, student astronauts are on final approach to Mars where they will take on the role of student flight controllers at Mars’ Mission Control. Teams must work together to track the weather on Mars, launch a new weather satellite, determine the best landing area for the spacecraft, and make sure their mission is a success.
Student astronauts on board the Space Station and flight controllers in Mission Control use remote sensing to collect data about how Earth systems are being affected by human activity such as changes in land use and increases in carbon dioxide levels. This space mission focuses on climate change and solar variability as it affects the Earth.
How do different weather variables affect flight? Students will learn the basics of airplane flight and explore how weather affects flight by using model airplanes and flight simulators. This program is aligned to the New York State Earth Science Regents curriculum.
Aeronautics: Forces and Motion
How do the four forces of flight affect how airplanes fly? Have your students find out as they learn the basics of airplane flight and explore the four forces on an airplane using a wind tunnel, model airplanes, and flight simulators.
How does an airplane fly? This program introduces students to the basic science of flight using model airplanes and flight simulators.
Earth Science Regents Astronomy: Life Cycle of Stars
Using our planetarium and hands-on activities, students explore the life cycle of stars. This program is aligned to the New York State Earth Science Regents curriculum.
Earth Science Regents Astronomy: Insolation
Using our planetarium and hands-on activities, this programs demonstrates the arc of the Sun as it travels across the sky and the angle of insolation explore the life cycle of stars. This program is aligned to the New York State Earth Science Regents curriculum.
Astronaut or Pilot Training Programs (12:1, 12:1:1)
NYCCAAM is an experiential, hands-on learning center and our programs are adaptable to most special needs populations. Our facility is wheelchair accessible. It should be noted that some of our programs do have bright flashing lights and loud sounds.
Astronaut Training and Aviation Training Programs are specifically geared towards 12:1 and 12:1:1 populations. We work with individual teachers to create a program that is just right for their students. Contact Peter Giles at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-608-6164 (ext. 111) for more information.
