July 20th is the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing.
Come join us for special activities throughout the Lab and celebrate this historic Out Of This World event. All activities are included with General Admission to the Lab.
12:00 pm – 3:00 pm – Explore the Lab and visit the different stations with our Moon Passport. Experiment with payloads on your very own Air Rocket in our Inspiration Hub. Explore the fundamentals of physics with It’s All Relative. The Tinker Shop will have kids using a scaled down “telescope” (binoculars) to search the moon for hidden objects. Make your mark with our Crater Creator and learn about how the surface of the moon was formed. In Rocket Fuel, kids will have a chance to create their own Rocket Launch with a simple chemical reaction. Complete all the activities and receive a special Moon tattoo (temporary, of course!)
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm – Meet with Dov Rhodes, a Research Fellow at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, who will talk about the lunar environment and implications for human and robotic explorers. Following, we will celebrate the historic landing!
