Students investigate the latest developments in astronomy and space travel by performing experiments, completing hands-on projects, and running computer simulations.
Students explore the scientific and engineering principles behind space suits and rocketry, the phases of the moon, telescopes, rovers, and zero-gravity equipment. They build model vehicles and spacecraft, including a water pressure-powered rocket. Other activities include planning and simulating a space mission, inventing their own constellations, and finding stars and planets in planetarium software.
