 3…2…1… BLAST OFF!

Let’s start this summer with a blast…into space, that is! Join us as we design and construct our own spacesuits, board a Space Shuttle headed to the International Space Station, hitch a ride on the Saturn V rocket to the moon, and land the Curiosity Rover on Mars.

 

Day 1: June 9 – Spacesuits 101

Why do astronauts wear spacesuits? Is a flight suit the same thing as a spacesuit? Find out this week as we investigate astronaut suits of all kinds! Then design and construct one of your own…you might even want to wear it to class all month!

 

Day 2: June 16– Blast Off!

Take an imaginary journey on the Space Shuttle Discovery, and dock safely to the International Space Station! Once aboard the ISS, we’ll build our own spaceships and practice skills that astronauts use every day in a series of hands-on activity stations. 

 

Day 3: June 23– One Small Step

Twelve people have set foot on the moon…you could be next! Strap yourself into the Saturn V Rocket, the largest most powerful rocket ever built, and head to the moon. Once there, you’ll have a chance to walk on the moon, make and test a model of the Saturn V, and create unique moon art.  

 

Day 4: June 30– The Red Planet

This week we’ll stowaway in the Curiosity Rover to get an unbeatable view of Mars. Then help to build a Martian colony and design, build, and land your own Mars Rover!

 

 

Saturday, June 20 – One Small Step  

Twelve people have set foot on the moon…you could be next! Strap yourself into the Saturn V Rocket, the largest most powerful rocket ever built, and head to the moon. Once there, you’ll have a chance to walk on the moon, make and test a model of the Saturn V, and create unique moon art.
