Rocket into Solar System Science!

Explore the solar system with Space Academy GX-1! Fully aligned with national science standards and state curricula, Space Academy GX-1 rockets students into a brain-expanding mission through space. As crew members of Space Academy GX-1, students investigate the astronomical basis for seasons, phases of the moon, gravity, orbits, and more. As students succeed, Grow Slides adjust to offer more advanced topics and problems. Just print the Record Keeping screen to track student progress and make recordkeeping easy!

Virtual Manipulatives® Promote Understanding

Using Virtual Manipulatives, students can see and touch the things they're learning about, such as planets and astronomical events. With the whole world and the moon and sun at their fingertips, students develop a real understanding of the abstract concepts underlying space science. They'll investigate interactions between the sun, moon, and Earth, and they'll understand the relationship between momentum and acceleration. Space Academy GX-1 includes a Teacher's Guide, lesson plans, reproducible activity sheets, toll-free technical support and a lifetime software warranty.

Learning Opportunities

  • Understand Interactions Between the Sun, Moon and Earth
  • Investigate Gravitational Forces, Orbital Pull and Newton's Laws of Motion
  • Explore the Relationship Between Momentum and Acceleration
  • Recognize that Nature Behaves in Predictable Ways
Stunning images help students grasp the vast dimensions of space and understand the relative sizes of planets, moons, and more.
In the Planetary Data Center, students interpret pictures, bar graphs, and charts to choose among competing hypotheses about the solar system.
In the Gravity Pilot Trainer, students learn how to successfully orbit the gravity wells of planets, moons and the sun, and discover how to launch their spaceships to different locations in the solar system.
Students explore a model of the Earth, sun, and moon to re-create astronomical events, such as solar eclipses or phases of the moon, and view them from many points both on Earth and out in space.
