Science Saturday: Living on the Moon

October 10, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Imagine what it will be like to live and work (and play!) on the Moon in the not-too-distant future. Participants will create and evaluate various Moon base plans — and then perform experiments that simulate systems needed to keep astronauts (and space tourists!) alive and exploring.
Join science facilitators from the Nevada Space Center for an adventurous exploration of the Moon, our sister satellite. All activities will take place outdoors (weather and conditions permitting). All participants are required to wear masks, and hands-on activities will all be pre-packaged for each family group participating.
Limited to eight family groups (because of health and safety restrictions, tickets will be sold per family group, not per person, and must be pre-booked). Tickets are required for all participants, students and guardians, and participants under 13 must be accompanied by at least one guardian per six students. Activities are targeted for 3rd through 6th grade students but fun for the whole family!
Program activities start at 9:30 a.m. and do not repeat. After activities, visit the rest of the museum at your own pace!
