TRANSCRIPT

  • Slide 1
  • The National Air and Space Museum One Museum, two locations Dorothy Cochrane, Curator, General Aviation National Mall Building Washington, DC cochraned@si.edu Margy Natalie, Docent Program Manager, Former FCPS Aerospace Educator in Residence, Udvar-Hazy Center, Chantilly VA nataliem@si.edu
  • Slide 2
  • General Aviation Aircraft are really interesting to students. They are more to scale and students can picture themselves in the plane! This Aeronca C-2 even smiles at them! The Crosley Flea is so tiny even the pre-k crowd looks and says I can fly that! Pictured here with one of our volunteer student interns!
  • Slide 3
  • We can talk about the planes, what they did and who did it. The Pepsi Sky Writer was flown by Suzanne Oliver, pictured here with her husband Steve and Pax, the dog.
  • Slide 4
  • Little Stinker was flown by Betty Skelton who was famous for her inverted ribbon cut! She was the first woman to perform that manuver. It hangs in the entry of the Udvar-Hazy Center
  • Slide 5
  • Quick and Easy ways to add aerospace to your classroom from the National Air and Space Museum!
  • Slide 6
  • Slide 7
  • Use aerospace examples in your current curricula! Some examples Experimental Design with paper airplanes or helicopters Elementary Math using aspect ratio (yes, this works with 2 nd grade!) Time/distance problems on the web Newtons laws Convection and conduction
  • Slide 8
  • Paper Airplane Experimental Design
  • Slide 9
  • Real Math
  • Slide 10
  • Slide 11
  • Slide 12
  • Fly by Math and Line up with Math!
  • Slide 13
  • According to Newton's third law... For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action. What does this mean? This means that for every force there is a reaction force that is equal in size, but opposite in direction. That is to say that whenever an object pushes another object it gets pushed back in the opposite direction equally hard. Let's study how a rocket works to understand Newton's Third Law. The rocket's action is to push down on the ground with the force of its powerful engines, and the reaction is that the ground pushes the rocket upwards with an equal force.

  • Slide 14
  • Authentic Assessment!
  • Slide 15
  • Teachers can be just as competitive as the kids!
  • Slide 16
  • Use Online Resources! Online Activities Learn by doing! A variety of online activities test your knowledge and demonstrate the principles of aviation and spaceflight. Geography From Space Test your geography knowledge with this online quiz. Airplane Anatomy Activities focused on the Wright brothers and the first airplane. America by Air Activities focused on the development of commercial aviation. CyberCenter Try your hand as a planetary researcher. Please NOTE: do not use "save your work" feature. It is not functioning. Black Wings Stories of famous African American aviation pioneers. http://www.nasm.si.edu/educ ation/onlinelearning.cfm
  • Slide 17
  • NASA Design Challenges! Thermal Protection Systems Design Challenge (Heat and Conduction) Spacecraft Design Structures Challenge (Newton's Law) Electrodynamic Propulsion Systems (Electromagnetism) Centennial of Flight: Propeller Design Challenge (Forces and Motion) Personal Satellite Assistant (Forces and Motion) Living Off the Land: Water Filtration Challenge (Properties and changes of properties in matter) Living Off the Land: Water Filtration Challenge (Properties and changes of properties in matter) Lunar Plant Growth Chamber (Life Science, Technology) NASA design challenges can be easily adapted to your classroom use, even if you dont have the time in your curriculum to do the entire challenge. Two of our 90 minutes lessons are based on these design challenges!
  • Slide 18
  • Isnt this stuff expensive?!? There are grants available to teachers to help pay for these supplies and materials! CAP AIAA Check your state department of aviation Check your local resources
