To the Moon and Back
In To the Moon and Back you are a team of NASA experts. The moon, an astronomical body that orbits planet Earth and years ago was considered a God, has become today the ultimate travel destination. The time has come for you to launch your space rocket, travel through the depths of space and land your astronaut back to earth with safety!
The activity lasts approximately 2 hours. We start with an introduction (15 minutes), then you develop and build your rocket (60 minutes) and finally we launch all rockets (15 minutes).
Are you UP for the challenge?

Fast Track Training & Project Briefing
Divided in teams of 6-8 people you get the confidential information and necessary material to build your rocket. You come up with your own engineering, determine how much fuel you need and what the capsule needs to have to bring back a raw egg. The brain and hands go to work!
Rocket Launch & Certification Award
Time for the ultimate test! Will your rocket bring the Eggstronaut safely back to Earth?
5,4,3,2,1 … Lift off!
An introduction will bring you up to speed about the Space Race of the 60s, combining facts, values and team effort. This intro will be enhanced by short but powerful videos about historical facts and a presentation, that will help your team to incorporate that knowledge into building your ow rocket.
The teams (6-8 people), start their challenging project of building a rocket, manning it with an eggstronaut and calculating its safe return to Earth. Each team splits in 3 departments that operate independently but will have to cooperate and communicate horizontally at all times. Without working together you will not be able to launch a rocket. At the deadline, all teams assemble to launch their rockets, and get ready for lift-off.
T- Minus 30 Seconds!
We will move outside for the final countdown and launch. The teams will get their rocket to the launch pad and prepare its high-tech engines for ignition. If everything has been engineered well, we can see an impressive lift-off and return the astronauts savey back.
