Thursday, February 18 2021 @ 11:00AM - Thursday, March 18 2021 @ 12:30PM EST| $125.00
It has been just over a half-century since humanity set foot on the lunar surface and yet much remains unknown about Earth’s moon. Your student has been chosen to work alongside other space explorers and scientists to create a moon base, capable of sustaining life on the lunar surface.
Together, we will explore the differences between life on earth and on the moon. We will learn about the history of space travel and study the lives of the astronauts who first set foot on Earth’s moon. We will seek answers to questions about how students will meet their basic needs during their mission. Students will EXPLORE new ideas together; CREATE a unique moon base with LEGO bricks; and SHARE projects with classmates.
Students will be introduced to real-world STEM concepts and gain an understanding of the engineering design process. Students will employ the engineering design process while creating a LEGO moon base, designed to sustain life during a mission to Earth’s moon.
Students should expect to spend approximately 1 – 2 hours each week on LEGO build assignments.
