Challenger Center’s first Flipped Classroom series is called Let's Launch! Join Maya and her friend B.U.D as they learn about planetary science – Mars, the Sun, Near-Earth Objects, the Moon, and the Solar System. Each course includes an 8-10-minute animated video accompanied by three lesson plans for use in the classroom. Most lessons can be completed using common household items.
