Apollo 50 Next Giant Leap

Apollo Next Giant Leap Student Challenge

NASA’s Northwest Earth and Space Sciences Pipeline invites teams of students in grades 5-12 across the United States and territories to recreate the Apollo 11 moon landing using a drone and a LEGO Mindstorm robot. Organizations will run the Apollo Next Giant Leap Student (ANGLES) Challenge locally to select a team to advance to the nearest regional challenge hub. The top team at each regional challenge hub will earn the grand prize of a trip to Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas!



Humans in Space Youth Art Competition! 

The SciArt Exchange invites young people 10-18 years old to submit visual, literary, musical and video artwork about what we will do on the Moon and why it is important. Entries are due April 30, 2019.


Join us in person at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston or online on Thursday, March 7, to hear Dr. Hewett give an overview of the incredible observations the New Horizons mission made at Ultima Thule. This presentation is part of this year's Cosmic Exploration Speaker Series theme, "LPI at 50: A Half Century of Solar System Exploration."
