The Center for Meteorite Studies offers loanable classroom modules focusing on The Origin of Meteorites that can be loaned to K-12 and informal educators. Module lessons and activities are aligned to the National Science Education Standards (Grades 5-12) and the Arizona Academic Content Standards.
Each module contains actual specimens (including meteorites!), 3D models, media resources (movies, posters, books), lesson plans, and a detailed user guide.
Educators may choose from a series of engaging activities that utilize hands-on materials geared to help students develop logical thinking, analytical skills, and proficiency in STEM disciplines.
Educators can register online to reserve the Origins of Meteorites module for up to two weeks at no cost.
At this time, the module cannot be shipped, only picked up, in person, from the ASU Center for Meteorite Studies.
Module pick-up and return dates are scheduled weekdays, between 9 AM and 5 PM, excluding ASU holidays. Module requests must be made at least 2 weeks in advance of preferred pick-up date.
