Man first landed on the Moon in July of 1969. It’s been 50 years since we first stepped foot on the lunar surface, but NASA and other space organizations around the world soon plan to usher in a new era of exploration—to the Moon and beyond. Come to WACO Air Museum and experience a one day workshop using NASA resources to implement STEM and Problem Based Learning. Practice Engineering Design and explore STEM resources to build models while acquiring, processing and reporting information.
