Family ASTRO: Moon Mission


The Moon Mission Leader Kit is the third release in our series of family events and activities on topics in astronomy for Family ASTRO Event Leaders. Your Astronomy Event participants will explore the Moon in legend and folktale, and discover that it is a world with conditions very different from our own. The Moon Mission cooperative board game (the corresponding Take-Home Activity) is a race against time as players work together to retrieve damaged instruments scattered across the lunar landscape.

Follow one or more of the links below for more information on the type of "mission” you want to undertake (note that Frequently Asked Questions about Moon Mission can also be found by clicking on these links):
