Beyond Earth: Shelter from the Elements

TLF ID A002078

This resource provides a scaffold for students to undertake a design challenge. The design challenge requires students to develop a shelter that protects humans from the hostile conditions on another planet. Students draw on their existing scientific understanding (for example, conductors and insulators), along with their understanding of the conditions of their chosen planet, to complete the design challenge.
