The Hab Lessons 

 

The Hab Lessons consists of Units filled with Modules, each of which includes Lessons with subtopics, quizzes and additional resources added monthly and accessible to all subscribers.

Included within each Module are 6 to 9 Lessons, along with additional resources for further study, pre-built quizzes, vocabulary and review tests, optional extra credit assignments, interactive maps and games and much more. Each month, we’ll release a new module with great new content so there’s always something new to explore!

For teachers, we’ve added cross links to local national curriculum requirements and optional quizzes on blog posts as well as extensive reporting and student oversight capabilities.

In addition, subscribers are invited to participate in lively monthly livestreams with Dr. O’Griofa, interacting in real time with discussions, questions, real-life stories of working on the Hab and more. Exclusive to the Hab Lessons and a truly unique and special opportunity for our students to find out what a life filled with science and adventure can be!

UNIT | Aquarius & The Oceans

Module | The Aquarius | Welcome to the Hab
The Aquarius Habitat is a unique science lab; learn what and where the Hab is, why it’s useful for NASA, and what we do down there.
Module | The Oceans | Coral Reefs
Coral reefs cover 25% of the ocean floor but impact the entire world.  Find out why!
Module | The Oceans | Invasive Species
They may not all seem scary, but they’re monsters none-the-less.  What is an invasive species?  How does it invade new territory? What are some of the worst invasive species?  What’s being done to combat them?

UNIT | Sea To Space

Module | Sea to Space | Under Pressure
Why do your ears pop when you’re flying?  Why do you need air tanks when you dive?  What is pressure, and how does it affect us, both in the air and below the sea?
Module | Sea to Space | ROVs and AUVs

Sometimes a job is too difficult or too dangerous for humans to perform, so how do robotic helpers handle the job not only in the sea, but in space as well?

Module | Sea to Space | Science of Sleep
Sometimes a good night’s sleep is hard to find on land, but what about under the ocean or in space?  How does micro gravity affect your sleep cycles?  What’s happening in your brain while you sleep?

UNIT | The Solar System

Module | The Solar System | Our Local Neighborhood
What’s the farthest distance you’ve ever travelled?  Did it take hours?  Days?  Years?  Our solar system is a huge place, but it’s worth exploring.
Module | The Solar System | Exploring the Universe
As large as the solar system is, our universe is mind-bogglingly huge, and it takes some very special equipment to observe it.  So how do we find exoplanets?  How do we explore distant galaxies?
Module | The Solar System | SETI
Is there anybody out there?  Are they trying to communicate?  That’s the question SETI has been working on for decades.  How do they do this?  What have they learned?
