Virtual Tour of NASA Goddard Space Center and Missions

NASA has some great resources for educators and students and this is another great one.

NASA's Goddard Space Center is in Maryland and they design, manage, and control a variety of experiments and space missions. I got to visit it and get a tour in my senior year of college when I presented my senior theses. NASA had funded it. It was a great experience with some really interesting things to see and learn about.

They have a great Virtual Tour of Goddard set up that goes through the entire life cycle of a mission from idea, to design, to construction, to testing, to launch to operations and finally the analysis of the data collected.

This is a great way to get students excited and interested in STEM subjects as well as introducing them to the engineering design process and science experiment process.

I've covered a lot of NASA Resources. Click on this link and you'll be taken to all of the articles about NASA.
