About this Grantee

With "Living and Working in Space," Ms. Holmes and Ms. Lindsay collaborate with NASA education specialists, local scientists, and engineering students to create a scientific design challenge to teach their fourth-grade students about Newton's Laws and introduce them to careers in science. Students work in teams to develop a balloon-powered rocket car that can travel the longest distance. Once the students test and refine their design, they make a presentation on the design's effectiveness.
