Tupperware, PONDS with NASA on Magnitude LIVE

Wow, we all learned so much from David Kusuma, VP Research & Development of Tupperware Brands. Tupperware isn't just a company that makes plastic containers for storage. Tupperware is solving perishable food challenges through design, engineering, and science both here on Earth and in the extreme conditions of space. David shared the history, behind-the-scene stories, and challenges creating a product on the International Space Station with the education and research community, Magnitude LIVE, an online...
Fort Worth Academy is growing plants in Space

Fort Worth Academy is growing plants in Space

The original post is on Facebook > Fort Worth Academy • 4/17/2020 When your class experiment involves growing plants in outer space, does it really matter if you are meeting on campus? Not at all. The seventh and eighth grade classes, led by science teacher Lauren Parker, have been able to continue with their series of experiments on the International Space Station despite the closed campus. The experiments, known as ExoLab, explore how potential food...
Which team are you on for the Leguminaut Challenge?

Which team are you on for the Leguminaut Challenge?

We are staying positive in this difficult time and doing what we have control of, learning and educate together on what we should research on our next flight in Space. Today, March 27th, 2020, all the ExoLab pi and co-pi (Principal Investigators) presented why we should choose their legume in the next ExoLab-8 experiment on the International Space Station in October 2020 aboard the SpX-21. It was quite a fun, lively, energetic, creative, and competitive…

CanSat High Altitude Balloon Launch – USC: Project Payload

CanSat High Altitude Balloon Launch – USC: Project Payload

USC Viterbi School of Engineering, K12 STEM Center has a program called Project Payload. The focus of the program is for girls to experience engineering first hand. On January 25th 2020, we were brought in to facilitate the launch and recovery of their experimental payload aboard a High Altitude Balloon. Magnitude.io creates extraordinary experiences for learning both in the stratosphere as well as in earth orbit aboard the International Space Station to schools across the...

ExoLab at Hopewell Middle School in Atlanta

Steve Jones, Ambassador for NASA and STEM teacher at Hopewell Middle School in Atlanta, introduced the Magnitude.io ExoLab to his students. "My students are really enjoying this unique experience from Magnitude.io! Students are studying nitrogen fixing bacteria in the classroom and comparing them to the same experiment that is being run on the International Space Station. Thanks Michael Wilkinson and Fulton County Schools for this amazing opportunity! #Exolab6." Original post.

Begeisterte Schüler der DBS-Lich im Projekt ExoLab

Students from Dietrich-Bonhoeffer-Schule Lich school in Germany led by the teacher, Bernhard Krenig, are preparing for their ExoLab experiment investigating the effects of microgravity on plant growth. They are one of the first 6 schools in Germany running the ExoLab experiment. Check out their school commitment in STEAM learning for their next generation, Dietrich-Bonhoeffer-Schule Lich. We are learning together across continents.

My dream is to work for NASA – Stockton 2019

Not only were these students totally engaged, but they were also eager to mentor and share with younger students what they have learned. The data and programming team kept the realtime telemetry data being collected. The payload design team secured all the internal experiment and positioned all the electronics. The weather team kept the rest of the class informed on weather condition and flight prediction. The flight management team filed the Notice to Airmen. Their…

Learn how to stream real-time data with Excel from Steve

Real-time data with Excel Stephan Unterholzner, a Science teacher at the Sierra High School in Manteca, California, has successfully captured and visualized the real-time data into Microsoft Excel from a CanSat High Altitude Balloon flight reaching almost 100,000 ft. We all call him "Steve U!" Steve has been using Microsoft tools for a long time. This time he is super excited about the new Excel ability to stream live data with IoT devices. Steve would...

SF Friends School Launched a High Altitude Balloon

This year, my classes embarked on a mission of launching a high altitude weather balloon, in cooperation with Magnitude.io. I'm the 8th-grade science teacher at the San Francisco Friends School and though I've been teaching for over a dozen years, I've never done a project like this before. We started the project in January when Ted and Tony came into our class (we are lucky to live close by!) for a kickoff to explain the...
