HANDS-ON ACTIVITIES:


ELEMENTARY (GRADES 2-4):

Have you ever wondered why astronauts have to wear suits in space? Students discover the effects of reduced gravity and the vacuum of space have on the human body. Students will learn to problem solve when they learn the spaceport has lost their luggage and they must repack using our store!

MIDDLE SCHOOL ACTIVITIES (GRADES 5-7):
Your students will blast off into an evening full of fun! Watch as they design and test model rockets that will launch to outstanding heights. Students will learn what food and personal items they will be able to take along with them into space when commercial spaceflight is a reality.

HIGH SCHOOL (GRADES 8-12):
Students will dive head first into the world of NASA engineers! Students will discover the challenges of working within a budget, just like real engineers. Communication and team work are stressed as students construct a spaceport prototype that must be able to withstand the harsh environment of space where temperatures can range from -250°F to 250°F and micrometeorites are a constant threat. Students will also create a two-stage rocket of their own design that they will watch blast off!
