Sunday, March 31, 2019; 9 a.m.- 12 p.m.

Come celebrate the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing by exploring some of the challenges NASA astronauts had to solve to make it to the moon. Running March 25 – Sept. 2, 2019, Be the Astronaut will take you on an interactive journey through space using state-of-the-art video game technology.
This exhibit will teach you about the laws of planetary motion and gravity and the concepts common to all space flight – launching, navigating, and landing. Then you will apply that knowledge by flying the spaceships, piloting the landers, and driving the rovers, in a thrilling narrative adventure to Earth’s orbit, the Moon, Mars, Ceres, and Jupiter.

Experiment with Space Mission Activities in Leo’s Creativity Studio, featuring Stomp Rockets, Lunar Landers, and the Space Exploration Marble Maze.

Be sure to check out our Use the Force Live Science Show (included with admission) at 6:30 p.m. on March 27 and 10:30 a.m. on March 31. During the show, we’ll try to debunk the magicians’ tablecloth yank trick and break a board in half (no karate skills necessary), along with so many more cool experiments.

PLUS! Meet some of the Lehigh Valley’s premier organizations offering family support services for learners of all shapes, sizes, and needs. Learn more about these organizations and how they are working to make the Lehigh Valley a better place for our community.

Da Vinci Science Center’s Sensory Sensitivity Programming is delivered in partnership with Good Shepherd Pediatrics.
