Aeroshell This week fourth grade students learned about Mars through a videoconference with Karen Ricks at NASA Langley. After the videoconference the students built aeroshells with parachutes. Some students also made landers or rovers to put inside the aeroshell. Next week Mrs. Royston’s class will videoconference with NASA and build aeroshells.
