NASA trailer visits LCSC this week
The NASA Exploration Experience Trailer is coming to LCSC on Tuesday through Thursday for area school students to learn more about NASA.
Because the trailer can handle a limited number of people at one time, there are only a few spots open to the public. If you want to sign-up for a tour of the trailer, contact LCSC Student Activities/Campus Recreation Coordinator Brandon Lytle at 792-2804 or firstname.lastname@example.org
At 4:30 p.m. Monday, LCSC President Dene K. Thomas will speak in the WCC and will be followed by a NASA speaker, following that there will be tours of the trailer, which will be located in the parking lot south of College Place, which will go until 8 p.m. This event is for invited campus officials and local dignitaries.
The trailer will be open to the campus and public on Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Thursday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Walk-ups are welcome, however, scheduled groups will take priority. The exhibit has two rooms. It takes about 6 minutes for each room, with a group of 12 taking about 13 minutes to visit both rooms. A class of 24 would take 26 minutes to go through the entire exhibit and about 5 extra minutes added to enter and exit, etc.
NASA’s Exploration Experience begins with a simulated visit to the moon where explorers will build a lunar outpost and touch an actual moon rock. Visitors will also explore a virtual model of the moon, interacting with the lunar surface to learn about NASA’s research and future plans for exploration. The second section of the exhibit features a hexagonal, interactive theater that introduces visitors to NASA’s plan of returning to the moon in new vehicles currently being developed to create a working environment that will help ensure safer, more effective future exploration into the solar system. Highlighted are NASA-inspired technologies that have led to the improvement of the quality of life on Earth.
