Information for Teachers (Including Classroom Activities), Skylab Student Project.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Washington, DC.
This program is intended to directly involve the educational community in space experiments, many of which can be related to existing curricula. Included in this first packet are: 1) a brief description of the Skylab Program and the National Science Teachers Association-National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NSTA-NASA) Skylab Student Program; 2) description of the experiment selection process for flight; 3) description of experiment performance; 3) summaries of each of the 25 national winning student experiments; 4) samples of the student proposals as submitted by the students; 5) related classroom activities. The descriptive portion of the booklet gives an impression of the working of "big" science as opposed to the kind of laboratory work most students are aware of. The experiment descriptions and classroom activities in some cases show the necessary integration of a number of sciences and the inclusion of engineering in carrying out projects in the complex environment of a space laboratory.
