During the workshops students developed a prototype parachute for slowing down, meant to simulate the hypersonic deceleration device used to get the Curiosity rover on Mars, according to NASA education specialist John Weis.
In other workshops students built a light-weight 3D matrix with good strength to simulate the interface between the stages of a rocket and a prototype of an exploration vehicle that must hold the characters given and travel the distances designated by NASA instructors.
In the fourth workshop, students must create a filter made from household items, like cotton balls and macaroni noodles, that can filter dirty water supplied to them.
NASA is focusing on middle school-aged students, according to Weis.

"For sure, it was the space station going over," said John Weis, aerospace education specialist with NASA. "What they were seeing was light reflecting off the solar panels."
The large panels produce about 100 kilowatts of electric power. Under the proper conditions, shortly after the sun sets or before it rises, a reflection can be seen with the naked eye.
Roughly the size of a football field, the space station travels nearly 250 miles off the ground at about 17,500 mph, close to 35 times the speed a commercial jet flies, Weis said.
Public involvement
Weis, who works at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama, visited Poplar Bluff in April to teach an activity intended to engage students in planning a trip to the moon. He is scheduled to return to Three Rivers Community College on Oct. 1 and 2 to hold another free workshop series for area educators entitled, "Tour of the Solar System."
