Blast Off STEM Project

Welcome back to another week of Community STEM. We are ready to share another exciting STEM lab based on some current events. Students and teachers are fascinated by space. This STEM lab will allow creativity and collaboration through the building of a Moon Lander! Sonja Fehlmann, a DEN Star from California, will be introducing this challenge.

The Goddard NASA Space Center has hired you as an engineer to design a spacecraft that can land on the Moon while still protecting the astronauts inside. Using the design guidelines- build away!!!
