Description

How do you build a reusable spacecraft that is strong enough to hold up in outer space, but is light enough to fly? How do you design it to meet the needs of the astronauts it carries? In the 1970s, NASA scientists and engineers were tasked with creating something completely new: a rocket-airplane combination that could safely transport astronauts to and from outer space. What they came up with changed the world!

Created in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution, this 6-Pack builds students' literacy skills while fostering curiosity, creativity, and innovation. It features a hands-on STEAM challenge that guides students through each step of the engineering design process and is ideal for makerspace activities. This 6-Pack includes six copies of this title and a lesson plan that specifically supports guided reading instruction. Features include:

  • Real-world examples provide insight into how the engineering design process is used to solve real-world problems
  • Content that highlights every component of STEAM: science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math
  • Career advice from Smithsonian employees working in STEAM fields
  • Dynamic images and text features enhance the reading experience and build visual literacy
