Field Trip to the Moon uses an inquiry-based learning approach that fosters team building and introduces participants to careers in science and engineering. The program components include the Field Trip to the Moon DVD [not included here], Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO)/Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) Activities, and Lunar Base Activities. Together these materials can be used to create your own workshop that introduces important concepts about the Earth and the Moon, and motivates participants to use their cooperative learning skills. Working as a full group or in teams, the participants can develop critical thinking skills, problem-solving techniques, and an understanding of complex systems as they discuss solutions to the essential questions in this program.
