The Moonbase Explorers program is designed for primary aged students and offers a highly engaging environment for practicing hands-on skills and learning various science topics.
Could we live on the Moon? Students in kindergarten through second grade explore the concept of a lunar space base in this exciting, hands-on adventure! Children will work in cooperative groups to investigate engineering, geology, life support and medical concepts in a simulated space environment. They even put on helmets, gloves and oxygen backpacks and go on a spacewalk on the surface of the Moon!
