        Teaching from Space

        Five educators from Mountview Road Elementary School in Hanover Township, NJ bring their experience from NASA's Teaching From Space program back to the classroom. At the Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX, the teachers designed a magnet experiment that they completed during a 23-second "reduced gravity" flight. This experiment was repeated with twice the amount of earth's gravity. Back at school, teachers simulated the conditions by using fans and other objects to allow students to understand the variables and challenges of doing science experiments in space.
