NASA @ Home and City is a virtual tour of NASA-related science that is all around us. Students visiting NASA @ Home and City can rotate buildings and take a look inside to discover everyday items, the development of which has been influenced by space exploration. Each item within a building has a narrated explanation of how that item was influenced by NASA technology. For example, students can take a look inside the bathroom of a house to learn how technology used at NASA has had an impact on the development of cosmetics and toothpaste. Beyond the explanations, students can explore NASA @ Home and City’s Spinoff Archives, where they can read more about each of the elements they see in the virtual buildings. After going through the virtual tours and reading the Spinoff Archives, students can take the Spinoff Challenge to assess what they learned in NASA @ Home and City.
