Students create a powerful bottle rocket design that can both reach Mars and provide their astronaut with a soft, safe landing on the red planet. Red planets provided.
Do you have a student interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)? Maybe they are interested in Architecture, Urban Planning, or Industrial Design? Does thinking and working like a designer sound interesting? Maybe you just want to find something new and interesting to do on a Saturday morning.
Indigo Moose and Design Plus Architects are excited to announce a new series of Saturday Studios that combine art, design, science, and engineering using hands-on projects. They are meant to be fun and creative with a new theme every Saturday, and maybe learn something interesting about our natural, built, or social environments!
NASA is currently on a journey to Mars, with a goal of sending humans to our neighboring planet by 2030! This mission will only be possible with the help of designers and engineers, who create the rockets, probes and space suits that astronauts use in their travels.
Students will be employed by NASA to create a powerful bottle rocket design that can both reach Mars and provide their astronaut with a soft, safe landing on the red planet. Our young engineers will be able explore the interaction between science and design, and conduct test launches in order “fail first” and then improve their designs. Red planets will be provided.
Please register on our website, www.designplusabq.com/saturdaystudios, by 7PM on Friday, April 28. Walk-ins are also welcome!
Recommended for grades six to ten. Please contact us if your child is interested but outside of the age range.
