Family Audience Make a Robotic Hand

About this Activity

This lesson is "Family Audience Make a Robotic Hand" Follow the lesson plan as you guide participants through a discussion on how NASA uses technology to move and repair objects in space, including the Hubble Telescope and the International Space Station.

 You can use the slideshow to guide discussion and have participants investigate the topic. Participants can use the worksheets at the end of the lesson plan to record thoughts and take part in an activity. Lessons can be led both synchronously or asynchronously.

For synchronous instruction, we recommend a platform that allows both for whole class discussion and for students to interact in small groups.

For asynchronous adaptations, we provide suggestions for teachers to provide additional support for the activities and for students to share their work with each other. To have participants work on this lesson independently, share this link with them and have them share using the platform of your choice.
