Nise Net Exploring the Solar System in the Discovery Lab

NISE Net Exploring the Solar System: Design, Build, and Test Discovery Lab Program

To Hands On! and beyond!  Celebrate the anniversary of the first man landing on the moon and Space Week.  Imagine a mission to space, draw inspiration from existing spacecraft, and then design and build your own simple model spacecraft with preformed components. After assembling, complete a series of tests to ensure that they’re ready for “launch”. Did you include the necessary tools? Can the spacecraft withstand the vibration of launch, or the spin of navigating through space? If not, it’s back to the drawing board—the design/build/test cycle begins again!  The Discovery Lab will be open by announcement periodically throughout each day.
