Buckle your seatbelts and get ready to blast off as you plan your own mission to space! Design and build a miniature spacecraft that will be presented and launched on the last day of class at a rocket-launch celebration. Explore our Earth and then move on to other planets, solar systems, and faraway galaxies. Join us to learn about past and current space missions, different kinds of stars, habitable planets, black holes, and even Einstein’s theory of relativity.
