E1626: Asteroids in Splash Summer 15 (Jul. 25 - 26, 2015)
Whether you're just entering middle school or about to graduate high school, this is a course you WON'T want to miss. It will consist of a lecture and a rock-smashing demo. The lecture will cover the science of asteroids and why they make the top of NASA's list for next exploration projects. We will also cover previous missions to asteroids and why the next mission must be carried out by humans and not robots. At the end of the lecture, we will give a demonstration of the rock smasher that our team has designed to collect rock samples from an asteroid.

S1345: The Magic of Gravity! in Splash Fall 14 (Nov. 08, 2014)
Why are astronauts in space weightless? How does NASA test the effects of zero gravity without going to space? This class is about the science of zero gravity: its explanation, effects on humans, and the ways in which we work with it.
