Description:

Simulated space missions are a fun and educational experience where you get to experience first-hand what it’s like to go on a mission to the Moon, Mars or a comet. Participants are assigned various jobs, which are similar to those of astronauts, scientists and engineers.

Rendezvous with a Comet

In the not-too-distant future, a crew of astronauts is being sent on a mission to explore a comet that is approaching Earth’s orbit. The crew must complete the assembly of a probe and launch it to rendezvous with Comet Encke. Along the way, astronauts use their scientific as well as problem-solving and decision-making skills to deal with unexpected and highly unpredictable objects in the Solar System that may come their way.

Lunar Quest

In the not-too-distant future, several permanent habitats on the Moon, the primary one being Moonbase Alpha, are home to astronauts and scientists conducting research and studying the planets beyond. Human operated vehicles and rovers search for titanium and iron deposits critical to the expansion of the lunar research. The new crew sent to help with this expansion must make critical decisions that impact both the health and safety of the crew and the success of the mission. As the team faces those choices and weighs the options, additional challenges put communication at risk and damage work that has already been completed.

Expedition Mars

The year is 2076. A handful of facilities have been established on the Martian surface including a greenhouse, a mobile geo survey base, and a centralized research habitat. The primary human habitat within the Mars system is not on Mars itself, but located approximately 9376 km away on its moon, Phobos. The Mars Transport Vehicle (MTV) regularly shuttles astronauts and scientists between the base on Phobos and the surface of Mars. When the crew members discover a threat to their MTV base, they must act quickly to save their crew and their station.

Jr Astronauts

The two-hour Jr Astronauts program includes both the Jr Astronauts: Mystery in Space mission AND the Mini Rockets workshop.

Jr Astronauts: Mystery in Space

Students in Kindergarten through fourth-grade can participate in the Junior Astronauts: Mystery in Space mission where they will travel 230 miles above Earth to the International Space Station to investigate a mysterious object that has been spotted in space. While in space, these junior astronauts utilize their scientific, math and engineering as well as teamwork skills and are engaged in experiments and activities to help NASA learn more about our world.

Mini Rockets Workshop

As part of the Jr Astronauts program, students in grades Kindergarten through fourth-grade will work in teams to design, build and launch their very own rocket. Participants will learn about Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion, basic rocket components, and how rocket design features affect their performance.
