3 EXCITING PROGRAMS FOR KIDS 5 - 14
Grades K - 1 (Ages 5 - 6)
Climb aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and discover what it takes to be an astronaut! In our Space Stations activity, students participate in a number of hands-on activities to explore different aspects of living and working in space. Stations explore a range of space-related topics, such as food in space, how space suits work, and more. Students will get to try on a spacesuit!
- Subjects: Engineering design, Properties on Earth and in Space, Rocketry and space travel, Motion of Fluids (Air)
Grades 2 - 4 (Ages 7 - 9)
Blast off with Sir Isaac Newton and explore his three laws of motion through rocketry activities! Investigate the aerodynamics of launch vehicles while building and launching your own rocket with our special high-powered air launchers. Guaranteed to be a BLAST! We start with our Force and Motion presentation with demonstrations to illustrate how and why rockets fly, and explain Newton’s Laws of Motion. All the children will then make their own paper rocket and shoot it up to 100 ft. high with our high powered air launchers! The rocket they make is their take-home souvenir from this fun and educational experience.
- Subjects: States of Matter, Newton’s Laws of Motion, Physics of Earth & Space, Engineering design process
iMISSION: SPACE BASE SIMULATION
Grades 5 - 8 (Ages 10- 14)
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. MISSIONs 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!
- Subjects: Problem-solving & reasoning, Hypothesizing & Scientific Method, Engineering design process, Rocks & Minerals, Properties on Earth & in Space
