Space Day Activities
Mars Rover (Tech)
Using an iPad, remotely control a spherical robot across a Mars landscape.
Reaction Rockets (Chemistry)
Participants will learn how materials interact, behave, and change by making their Alka-Seltzer “rockets” launch into the air.
Egg Drop: Capsule Design Challenge (Engineering)
A variation of the egg drop challenge. Guests design and build a capsule for an “eggstronaut” that can withstand a drop from the second floor with the help of SMO’s very own sky crane.
Nebula Spin Art (Art, Early Childhood table – not available to all guests)
Using a salad spinner and drops of paint, Children can create a nebula as unique as the real thing.

Guests can design personal mission patches that represent their crew and its goals for a future moon mission.
Joining us as our special guests this year, our new community partners - OU Pick & Hammer Geology Club: Impact Craters
Children will experiment with dropping various size “meteorites” to see what kind of craters they can make.
