Aeronautics: Weather (Grade 6)
How do different weather variables affect flight? Students learn the basics of airplane flight and explore how weather affects flight by using model airplanes and flight simulators. This program aligns to the Investigating Weather and Climate unit in the NYC Science Scope and Sequence.
Operation Comet (Grade 6)
"Mission Control, this is Spacecraft. Do you read me?" In this simulated space mission, students learn to work as astronauts onboard our spacecraft and flight controllers in Mission Control as they conduct scientific experiments, maintain safe living conditions, and study a comet.
Aeronautics: Flight (Grade 7)
How does an airplane fly? This program will introduce students to the basic science of flight using model airplanes and flight simulators.
Expedition Mars (Grades 7, 8)
After seven months in space, student astronauts are on final approach to Mars where they will take on the role of 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.
Aeronautics: Forces and Motion (Grade 8)
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. This program is aligned to the Energy, Forces, and Motion unit of NYC Science Scope and Sequence.
Earth Science Regents Astronomy: Life Cycle of Stars (Grade 8)
Using our planetarium and hands-on activities, students will explore the life cycle of stars. This program is aligned the the New York State Earth Science Regents curriculum.
Earth Science Regents Astronomy: Angle of Insolation (Grade 8)
Using our planetarium and hands-on activities, this program demonstrates the arc of the Sun as it travels across the sky and the angle of insolation. This program is aligned the 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 Pilot 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.
