The U.S. Space & Rocket Center is celebrating the historic achievements of the Apollo program for Moon Walker Week July 18-22. Each day in the Saturn V Hall, we will highlight each crewed Apollo mission with interactive educational activities and explore the Artemis program, NASA’s deep space future lunar exploration efforts.  

Activities include:  

LUROVA Lunar Roving Vehicle Simulation – Drive along the virtual lunar surface and explore the paths driven by the Apollo astronauts during the Apollo 15, 16 and 17 missions.  

Apollo 11: Moonboot prints – One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. Make your mark on history with the iconic Apollo 11 moonboot print!   

Apollo 12: Exploring the Universe: Static Electricity – Apollo 12’s Saturn V Rocket was struck by lightning at lift off! In this activity, discover how static electricity works by building a simplified tool that detects invisible forces on Earth and in space.  

Apollo 14: Mini Moon Golf – Play space golf under the Saturn V Moon Rocket like astronaut Alan Shepard on the Apollo 14 lunar mission!   

Apollo 15: Galileo’s Hammer and Feather Experiment – Recreate the famous Apollo 15 experiment on Earth just as the Apollo astronauts did on the Moon.   

Apollo 16: Lunar Olympics – Pin the legs on the Lunar Module, complete the astronaut gravity toss and see how many orbits you can accomplish with the lunar hula hoop challenge!
