WeDo and NXT at International Space Station!
Today LEGO Education published a couple of videos from ISS on-orbit classrooms, where students on earth are invited follow the same experiments to check how do they behave equally or differently in these two environments.
They are also challenged to explain why the differences they observe occur, or given some hints about the sensors work and why they behave differently in spae when it is the case.
Just take a look in the two videos below and lets wait more of these become available.
Then we just got two additional videos where one demonstrates a LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Gyrorobot and does it behave in the microgravity environment. Students are also challenged to compare with their observations and explain the differences.
In the end there is a message to look for other "LEGO Bricks in Space" videos and classroom activities at www.LEGOspace.com. Although it looks the domain is not yet running at the present time.
Funny! This astronaut's spacesuit doesn't have gloves... It shouldn't have been difficult to find a pair in Billund...
It is certainly a matter of time until we can see more of these.
