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 person landing on the moon back in 1969. 

Brainstorm your own mission to space, draw inspiration from existing spacecraft, and then assemble your own simple model spacecraft with preformed components. After assembling your spacecraft, complete a series of tests to ensure that it’s ready for “launch”. Did you include all necessary tools? Can the spacecraft withstand the vibration of launch, or the spin of navigating through space? If not, then 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.
