Juno's Family Secrets- Information Education Activity Guide

Bring the excitement of NASA's Juno mission to children ages 8-13 with Explore: Jupiter's Family Secrets! 

This module includes:

  • Hands-on activities for children ages 8-13, with an additional selection of deeper investigations for children ages 11 to 13
  • Correlations to the National Science Education Standards
  • Background information for facilitators
  • Reading and multimedia resource lists

The module showcases how the Juno mission will unveil Jupiter's deepest secrets, including clues about how our solar system formed and Jupiter's unique traits. The module may be flexibly implemented in summer camps, after-school programs, festivals, science days, family events, and more! You may design your own program of one or more of the hands-on activities, or you may choose to build the story of the Juno mission and its science through the complete series of activities. The activities rely on inexpensive, easy-to-find materials to investigate science concepts like weather, magnetic fields, density, gravity, solar system formation, and the process of science. And children may take their creations home with them!
