Space exploration (Vancouver)

Ready for launch!

Go to the Moon on Spring break. The idea seems absurd, but it could one day become a reality!  In the meantime, your astronauts will blast off with us for a rocket trip carried out in three stages: exploration of the solar system, a stop on the Moon and launching their own space shuttle! They will be the heroes of space exploration!

 On the menu:

1) Solar system (60 min)

2) Moon (60 min)

3) Mini space shuttle (60 min)

  • Explain the Big Bang theory on the origins of the universe, planets and the Moon.

  • Test the chemical decomposition of water mixed with citric acid to launch a spaceship.

Our needs
