Aligned to Standards
The 50 minute, interactive tour is aligned to Next Generation Science (NGSS) and CSTA K-12 Computer Science Standards. The Teacher Toolkit includes a facilitation guide, worksheets, and other resources to support learning during the tour. Recommended for grades 4+.
Play it on Kahoot!
The fun, game-like tour will be available for FREE on Kahoot! to all interested classrooms and families. Students can play each other while learning about new deep space technology being tested in NASA’s Artemis I flight test. No account required.
Hosting a tour provides the best experience for classrooms with 1:1 devices. Educators run their own tour and enable students to compete against their classmates as they explore the technology and careers of the future. Host the full tour (50 min) or split tour (two 25 min tours).
For solo learners or classrooms without devices, use the link below to access the single player tour. Players move through the tour at their own pace and compete against previous players. Teachers can also project this tour on their big screen if they do not have student devices.
Our Teacher Toolkit provides educators with guides, worksheets, and extension activities aligned with CSTA K-12 Computer Science Standards and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Use these materials to discover all the possibilities with computer science learning and careers of the future, and to set students up for success before, during and after the tour.
