Chemistry in Action!

The Science Factory: Space Exploration
Instructor: Mrs. Betsy Cannella, Kickapoo High School

Join us in The Science Factory's Geek Lab, home of the Springfield Robotics Program. Staff and students are planning experiences that will allow those interested in STEM concepts and space exploration to gain experiences unlike any other. In 2019, we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Those who choose to join us will celebrate the physics and science behind this landmark achievement with hands-on labs and space engineering challenges. Once we explore NASA's past, we will look into the future of the space program and create possibilities for our space future. Who is ready to explore SPACE?!
