STEM on Station Science

'The International Space Station is the ultimate science laboratory! Experiments and demonstrations are practically free from the effects of gravity. How are physical phenomena affected by microgravity? Here you can view videos of astronauts aboard the space station as they demonstrate science concepts taught in grades 5-12. Show students a real-world demonstration of Newton's Laws, and explore pendulum motion and other science concepts in the microgravity environment of the space station.'

The site includes a link to 18 videos on YouTube that can be used to supplement the class material.
