Rethink: Drop Zone Challenge

Can your students find a solution for future planetary exploration?

You have reached the main content region of the page.

We are entering an exciting era where Moon exploration will be witnessed by a new generation. In this hands-on workshop students design, create and test a prototype astronaut lander.

By using an innovation process, students will:

  • explore and collaborate on design
  • test their prototype on our 5.9m high drop zone exhibit
  • refine their prototype to reduce the impact on landing
  • collect and analyse data using pocketlabs and iPads
