Pluto Flyby - A Teachable Moment

by NASA, posted on 4:43 AM, July 17, 2015

Dear science teachers,

JPL/NASA Educational Technology Specialist Lyle Tavernier wrote this wonderful blog post about how educators can use the Pluto flyby as a “teachable moment”: http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu/news/2015/7/16/how-to-make-nasas-pluto-flyby-a-teachable-moment-for-students/

In addition to providing background on the flyby and what it means, it also includes math problems and links to various activities and resources across JPL and NASA websites.

Feel free to share!

Best wishes,
Rachel
