About the event
Follow an astronaut crew from initial selection through training , to space and back safely, all with real NASA artifacts. You will select your crew based on skills necessary for long duration spaceflight with a variety of languages and cultures, design your crew patch, learn the basics of rocketry, calculate the distances to your target, landing precisely where you get the most scientific return for budget and living and working in extreme environments. You will integrate all of your learning into a Mission Integration game; learning budgeting, mission design and execution, with real challenges, both setbacks and spinoffs. All activities can be brought back to class or integrated into a multi class or week after school space club.
