Space
Explorations
Space Explorations, a 1/2 year course for 8th
grade students, is a science elective
designed to increase achievement in science
through hands-on lab experiences.  The
space science group at Northwestern State
University, in cooperation with NASA,
designed the curriculum.  Students work in
teams to solve problems, simulate NASA lab
activities, and design and build rocket and
space station models and prototypes.
