 From launching rockets and flying airplanes to understanding masses and orbits or planets, NASA depends on Newton’s Laws of Motion. We have great resources for those who teach physical science. Three DIY Podcast modules include videos and audio with astronauts and NASA experts explaining the laws of motion.  Students can combine clips from Newton's Laws, Sports Demo, and Rocket Science with their own demonstrations to create a podcast episode explaining the laws of motion. Below I’ve listed some NASA resources that you can use with your class.
