This project supplements the IQP A Proposal for an Educational Lunar Base Simulation Exhibit from the 2014-15 academic year. The original project proposes to repurpose the basement of the Worcester Memorial Auditorium into an educational exhibit for students in grades 5-8 simulating a base established on the moon. The proposed exhibit consists of five sub-exhibits, each explaining different STEM concepts from the Massachusetts Curriculum Standards Framework through hands-on activities. This project adds two sub-exhibits with STEM related activities. The activity of the first sub-exhibit is geared toward younger students in grades 5 and 6, while the second activity is more advanced for students in grades 7 and 8.
