In this workshop, participants will investigate neutral buoyancy and the operations of the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory at NASA's Johnson Space Center where astronauts are trained to deal with the weightless environment of the International Space Station. The science and engineering concepts of buoyancy in space and underwater will be explored and highlighted through hands-on activities and engineering design as well as the concepts of buoyancy and weightlessness of free fall. The workshop will culminate in an NBL tour and LIVE interviews with two NBL divers leaving participants with an exciting set of lessons ready to go in the classroom focused around this engineering marvel. Don’t miss this FIRST TIME collaboration between the United States Naval Academy and Space Center Houston culminating with a design activity that results in a miniature neutral buoyancy chamber for your classroom.
