        Invisible Force Challenge

        To change a spacecraft's speed and direction, NASA engineers use a planet's or moon's gravity, a process called a "gravity assist." In this video from Design Squad Nation, kids design and build systems that use magnets to control the speed and direction of a rolling ball. As they build their systems, the kids use the engineering design process, apply a variety of science concepts (e.g., force, magnetic fields, inverse square law), and learn how NASA spacecraft use gravity to help them explore the solar system.

        Victoria Garcia: Aerospace Engineer

        In this video from Design Squad Nation, NASA aerospace engineer Victoria Garcia describes how she uses virtual-reality tools to design living and work spaces for astronauts. She also talks about not allowing deafness be a barrier in her life.
