Destination Moon
Grades 5-8

The Mission: A team of researchers is ready to return to the Moon to explore its surface and establish a second habitat for astronauts to live and work! To get there, they’ll launch and fly Blue Origin’s reusable launch vehicle, New Glenn, and explore the Moon’s surface using Blue Origin's lunar lander, Blue Moon. Student teams in Mission Control have a critical job: initiate the launch of New Glenn into orbit to land Blue Moon safely on the lunar surface. While in orbit, teams monitor potentially dangerous space weather and space debris, conduct safety checks on the spacecraft systems, deploy and monitor satellites, and launch payloads. With the journey underway, Mission Control learns there is an oxygen leak at the original lunar habitat that is putting the astronauts at risk. The team in Mission Control will work with the crew already on the Moon to use the given supplies and fix the oxygen leak. Can they repair the leak using the limited supplies they have on their base? Will the crew repair the leak in time before it threatens their safety on the Moon? A successful mission depends on it.

Teamwork is critical to our mission! Each student is assigned to a team and works with their small group to complete their research and analysis.
