MISSION

CLEANROOM ELECTRONIC FIELD TRIP
Scientists are usually concerned about protecting the Earth from the sun. But what happens when the sun needs to be protected from Earth? NASAÍs Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas has built the answer in the form of a class 10 cleanroom, in which Genesis scientists analyze solar samples. The cleanroom will ensure that neither contamination nor debris will mask the solar wind samples, throwing off the results. The mission of Astromaterials Curation at the Johnson Space Center is to protect, preserve and distribute for study samples from the moon and interplanetary space in support of solar system exploration.

Take a simulated journey online through the cleanroom at Johnson Space Center. This interactive field trip features 3-D environments with accompanying video and objects to investigate, exercises and experiments to perform, and integrated learning activities at every station along the way, including teacher guides and the full complement of student handouts and activity sheets.

CLEANROOM ELECTRONIC FIELD TRIP

CLEANROOM TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION MODULE

CLEANROOM TECHNOLOGYDynamic Design: Cleanroom Technology
In Dynamic Design: The Cleanroom, students will become familiar with the requirements and conditions of working in a cleanroom environment. In this middle school module (grades 5-9), students will learn about the design specifications of the cleanroom and the requirements for working in NASA's cleanest room. Students will model the assembly of the solar collector wafers onto the array frame for the Genesis mission. ln the assessment activity, students will use what they have learned to demonstrate the planning, and assembly of an array frame in a simulated cleanroom environment. The cleanroom module will utilize both the video "Cleanroom Technology, NASA Genesis Mission," and the Cleanroom Interactive Field Trip as integral parts of this education module. Upon completionof the assembly project, students will understand why working together to complete a project is essential.
