The information presented in this workshop will help you guide students in submitting THEIR zines to the
LEO Art Challenge:
Topics: Low Earth Orbit, LEO, satellites, space debris, astronauts, International Space Station, orbits, gravity, momentum.
The lesson plan below for LEO Art Challenge has been presented to various workshops for teachers as well as students.
- Collaborate, cooperate, and create a ‘zine’ that describes one of the phenomena and/or objects associated with LEO (Low Earth Orbit)
- Engage in critical thinking as a 21st century skill
- Apply knowledge to a creative form of art that provides technical information
- Apply knowledge to write technical information in an artistic way
- Gain assistance in preparing a zine to submit to the SpacEdge LEO Art Challenge:
Art students made the attached zines. Their science class required them to use zines to portray and explain a subject related to astronomy.
Colored Pencils or Markers
Copies of Zine
