Mini space shuttle
5… 4… 3… 2… 1… 0… Liftoff!
Why are astronauts sent into space? We will learn about the major stages in the conquest of Space through role-play activities, jam-packed with fun and laughter. Next, aspiring astronauts take part in an exciting experiment that involves a small part of their day, but becomes a great moment in their scientific lives: launching their first hydrogen fuel rocket produced from decomposition of water molecules! You’ll have stars in your eyes!
Objectives at the elementary level:
- Understand how the conquest of space has progressed over the decades
- Understand the structure of an atom and a molecule.
- Experiment on the chemical decomposition of water mixed with citric acid.
- Test the action-reaction principle.
