These NASA materials describe hands-on science and engineering challenges for students, using space exploration as an engaging context. The activities are related to NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and NASA's Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite missions. Students design and build: *an air-powered rocket; *a shock-absorbing system that will protect two marshmallow "astronauts"; *a rubber band-powered rover; *a cardboard crane for maximum load-lifting ability; *a paper cup modified so that it can carry a marble down a zip line and drop it onto a target; *a solar hot water heater to cause the greatest rise in temperature.
