Time: 9:00 AM- Noon
Where: iSPACE on the Scarlet Oaks Campus

Be advised: this is not your ordinary field trip!  Students are immersed into the various roles of living and working on a lunar research base and will be challenged to apply STEM skills in this fun and unique learning experience. Problem-solving, teamwork, and communication skills become key elements as students work to keep their space base running.  iMISSIONs are educational simulations used as dynamic models of workplace activity allowing students to face authentic conditions and problem-solve just as their professional counterparts must. Students apply for their position based on their interests and skills, and perform tasks simulating experiments related to their assigned job. Students will be immersed into the role of scientist/astronaut where they must rely on their fellow crew members to ensure the success of the mission. Depending on their position, students may be tasked with operating a robotic arm, conducting experiments in a glove box, facilitating mission timeline activities, recording and transferring data, navigating, and much more!
