2012–2013 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 three presentations during their lunar research experience — Moon 101, results of their research, and a research poster.

Moon 101

During the first month 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 seen in one of three images of the lunar surface.
