Abstract

The goal of this project was to create and manage a science exhibit design contest, whose target audience is student between grades 5 to 9. This exhibit is to have a Lunar Base theme circa 2069, which will be used to teach science concepts. Groups of students will be at this exhibit for about five hours, thus the exhibit will have between six to eight activity stations. This contest is to be sponsored by SHIFTBOSTON and American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics New England Chapter ( AIAA-NEC). SHIFTBOSTON specializes in the repurposing of urban buildings of historical interest and AIAA-NEC supports Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education in the schools and seeks to foster a technically literate public that can appreciate the benefits of space activity.
