Video Coming Soon: Watch as Emily Calandrelli and engineers from Amazon, Lockheed Martin, and Webex test the payload as it is in flight. Hear and see Alexa’s responses returned from the spacecraft near the Moon and view the results of the whiteboard collaboration and new telemetry display experiments.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will my class see on the tour?

On the tour, you will learn how NASA’s Orion spacecraft is getting to the Moon, how we communicate with spacecraft using the Deep Space Network, and how new deep space technologies experiments from Amazon, Lockheed Martin, and Webex will be tested in space. See the Teacher Toolkit to learn more.

Video of the live demo will be made available in the coming weeks, where students can see the payload in action as it was tested during Orion’s flight around the Moon.

How long is the tour?

The Kahoot! tour is designed to take 45 min to 1 hour and can be adjusted to fit your class schedule with the split tour option.

Students can view the highlights from the live demo or the full 35 minute experiment and Q&A with engineers. Video coming soon.

Is there a recording of the tour that I can use with my class instead?

Yes! Play the tour on Kahoot! at anytime. Students can compete with each other on embedded trivia as they complete the tour in class or at home. Following the live tour, footage will be embedded within the Kahoot! or available to watch separately on YouTube.

What grade levels can attend?

We recommend the tour for any grade 4 and above. The tour includes content accessible to each grade and teachers can use the Teacher Toolkit to adjust learning how they see fit.

What STEM topics will be covered on the tour?

The following STEM topics will be introduced and explained in real-life context during the tour: Deep Space Network, payloads, radio waves, latency, codecs, bandwidth, radiation, telemetry, and voice artificial intelligence.

See the Teacher Toolkit to learn more.

Can I share my screen to my remote learners?

Yes. If you have remote learners, you can screen share via your normal conference platform. You may also share your unique link with students so that they will be able to utilize the interactive portions (trivia and chat to tour guides).

For Kahoot!, you can either share your screen and students play on their own devices, share your screen and students play together as a class, or assign the Kahoot! to your students to complete individually.

What student data is collected?

We do not collect personal student information on either tour. If a teacher does have a Kahoot! accounts, they can assign the tour to their students to track their students’ progress, but individuals’ information is not shared with Amazon.

How much does this cost?

The tour, and all materials included in the accompanying Teacher Toolkit, are provided to teachers at no cost.

Can individual students sign up by themselves, independent of a class?

Yes, absolutely. Students can also play the Kahoot! version of the tour on their own.
