Report on the Results:  Students and parents learned what skills they need to be a scientist - and that observing and thinking can mean science is happening even without lab coats and goggles. A brief history of the space program was presented using NASA materials. All were surprised to find how close the International Space Station is to Earth when we made a scale model using a beach ball to represent Earth. Thanks to the Project Moon activity by the Lunar and Planetary Institute of Houston, Texas, we studied possible lunar outpost locations. We ended with film canister rockets propelled by fizzing antacid tablets.
