After building the four bridges in the STEAM Kit, we encourage kids to build a bridge of their own design! Please send photos of your bridges to [email protected] We will post photos all kid-created bridges on our website.

Free PLANETS STEM Activity Kits
PLANETS (Planetary Learning that Advances the Nexus of Engineering, Technology, and Science) is a NASA-funded project focused on creating engaging STEM activities for 3rd-8th grade students in out-of-school time environments. It is collaboration between the NAU Center for Science Teaching and Learning, the USGS Astrogeology Science Center and the Museum of Science Boston. The content, which is downloadable for free from the website https://planets-stem.org, is focused on topics in planetary science, such as Remote Sensing, Water in Extreme Environments and Space Hazards.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, PLANETS is providing activities that learners can access and complete at home, independently or with limited oversight. There is a space hazards game, a card game about water in the solar system, and a remote sensing investigation where you can build a spectrograph. These kits are freely accessible on the website (https://planets-stem.org/planets-at-home) and will be available for free during the Flagstaff Festival of Science at the times and locations listed below. Please give NASA your feedback on the use of these kits by completing a short evaluation online at the PLANETS website.
