In this age where smart phones, GPS, self driving cars and super fast personal computers are common place and taken for granted, it’s hard for young learners to appreciate the incredible effort it took in 1969 that enabled Neil Armstrong to make that first “…one small step for man”. In this program, your young patrons in grades 2-5 will learn about the Apollo 11 Mission , and of the new technologies that needed to be designed that would take mankind safely into the unknown and back home again. Junior aeronautical engineers will explore the basics of how the Saturn V rocket worked, and build their very own Saturn V to take home and share with their families. Recommended for grades 2-5 , enrollment in program not to exceed 15 children.
