Day 5: Final Mission


Today started with a lesson about a space shuttle's re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere.  We created a shield and tested it with an Egg-stronaut.

Planning and designing.

Getting set up.

Health check for the Egg-stromuat.

Following that was our second and final mission as Team Harmony.  We had a successful mission and the shuttle returned safely to Space Camp!



Base commander!


Then we had another challenge: to create a method of getting a payload to Mars and to have a payload that could move around and collect data.  Team harmony won the challenge!

The challenge!
Working together in a time crunch.

Look how far ours rolled!

Checking the eggs.

Doing the math to see who is the winner!

Tomorrow is the last day of Space camp.  I have learned so much and am excited to bring it back to my students!
