Lunar Learning Expeditions - A NASA Mission Earth and GLOBE Experience
Updated 4 months ago
In development
Lunar Learning Expeditions (LLE) will be released to a limited number of museums, science centers, and selected K-12 classrooms in celebration of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. This is a project being done through the Institute for Earth Observations at Palmyra Cove as part of a NASA CAN Mission Earth grant. LLE is intended to not only provide a historical experience, but also in data collection and training of GLOBE ( protocols in a rather unique environment.
Features include:
-Visit Apollo 11 landing site from a historical perspective; deploy experimental package.
-Address moon landing misconceptions; additional experiments (ex: feather and hammer drop)
-Revisit the landing site in the future (50 years later) with new experiments. Integrate GLOBE data collection protocols such as soil collection and surface temperature.
-Tailored for short visitor walk through experience, or extended expeditions for more in depth training.
