The Space Frontier


The feats of mankind in the world of aerospace are nothing but awe-inspiring - the Beluga transporter, the supersonic jets, Armstrong's moon landing and the well-choreographed descent of Curiosity on Mars to name a few. As the next frontier of asteroid mining and space travel unravels, let's understand what it takes to get off the ground and fly. This program delves into the foundations of aerospace technologies. Participants face off with all the mysteries of space, planets, and stars. Participants create planet models, design taternaut TM space suits, and enjoy hands-on rocketry.
