Orion’s Quest engages teachers and students in authentic space-based research through live or virtual “missions.” Missions are free, standards-based, and manageable in scope for easy integration into curriculum. In each mission, students analyze photo and/or video data downlinked directly from the ISS and submit their findings to scientists, making real contributions to world-class research aboard the ISS! Choose from missions that focus on butterflies, plants, microbes, spiders, stem cells, and more.
Each mission features:
- Correlated classroom activities
- Analysis of actual experiment photos and/or videos
- Optional extension materials
