In this activity guide, NASA and Design Squad team up to inspire a new generation of engineers. The guide offers six hands-on challenges that bring engineering and NASA's moon missions to life for kids at events, and in school, and afterschool programs. Two activities—Launch It and Touchdown—are for events and grades 3-8. Three activities—Roving on the Moon, Heavy Lifting, and On Target—are for grades 6-12. And one activity—Feel the Heat—is for grades 9-12.
