2010–2011 Student Presentations

Students participating in the NASA Lunar Science Institute High School Lunar Research Projects experience every step of the scientific process. The ability to communicate research findings is an essential step in the process of science. Students give two presentations during their lunar research experience – Moon 101 and the results of their research.

Moon 101

During the first weeks of their research experience, students explore lunar science articles describing the Moon’s formation, evolution, and geology. Reading these articles gives students the chance to become familiar with the lunar environment and lunar surface processes. Students apply this knowledge to their Moon 101 presentations in which they characterize the geology of the region surrounding the Apollo 11 landing site.

2010-2011 Research Presentations

At the end of the semester, students present their research findings. This presentation takes place in two parts: 1) a PowerPoint presentation to team mentors and program leads and 2) a conference-style poster presentation to a panel of lunar scientists. The panel of lunar scientists judge the poster presentations to determine which team will present their research at the NASA Lunar Science Institute forum at NASA Ames in California.
