NASA Connect - Proportionality - The X-Plane Generation



NASA Connect Video containing seven segments as described below. NASA Connect segment explaining different energy sources. The video also explores how engineers use computation. NASA Connect segment explaining energy and motion. The video also explains how proportionality works and how models are tested. NASA Connect segment exploring a web activity involving the design of a scale model. The video involves students in this activity to build, test, and record data according to the web activity. NASA Connect segment explaining how models are tested to create more efficient designs. The video explores the new X-33 engine and explains what engineers learn from scale models. NASA Connect segment explaining the forces that affect the X-33 and how these forces relate to everyday objects. The video explores weight and aerodynamics and how to design vehicles to become more efficient. NASA Connect segment involving students in an activity exploring the design of a paper scale model of the X-33. The objectives of the activity involve measuring the linear dimensions of the model and comparing them, and computing a scale factor. NASA Connect segment explaining the X-Plane, scale model, and Venture Star. The video also explores a Thermal Protection System, or TPS and gives examples of this.
