SC220. Walking Like a Mathematician Across Our Solar System
Are you ready to completely engage your elementary and middle school students in a multidisciplinary activity? This workshop will provide you hands-on experience with an activity that incorporates math, space science, reading, writing, and technology. Attendees will calculate the relative size of planets to construct a planetary and solar system model; take a technological walk through the solar system utilizing QR codes, virtual reality, and augmented reality; and use the information gathered to generate expository and scientific writing samples. Participants should bring a smartphone or tablet to experience the technological formats.
