Have you ever wondered how NASA landed men on the moon? What about the mechanics of a windmill? And how do airplanes stay in the air?

Each Wednesday in November we’ll explore these concepts hands on! We’ll talk about what it takes to land on the moon, build a spacecraft and test it out. There’s a variety of materials we’ve provided to work on your windmill and airplane. This workshop is a chance to explore the basics of physics. Kids will learn by building, troubleshooting and testing their handmade machines.

Pictured above are students Alyssa and Arely with Jesus as they build their lunar landing crafts
