Description

Science and Engineering Practices in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). In The Orbital Mechanic, a solar flare knocks a space probe off course endangering a costly mission. A simple solution comes just in time from an unlikely source to save the spacecraft. In this story, your students will learn how engineers use science, math and physics to get spaceships from Earth out to distant planets and beyond. Have them participate by asking questions that are provided in the story, examining models, interpreting data and engaging in communication. Have the students read the story out loud. Stop to ask the questions provided in italics. Take time to allow and encourage students “to ask questions of each other about the situations they read, the phenomena they observe, and the conclusions they draw.” Look for the NGSS pin in the story. This story has been mapped to the eight Science and Engineering Practices in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
