Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing!

Updated: Nov 20, 2019

Hello STEM Sparkers! Things have been a little hectic at STEM Spark HQ as we prepare for a move, but among all the chaos, we haven't forgotten to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the Moon! NASA is of course celebrating, and you can check out all their cool celebrations here.

Jack choose to celebrate the Moon landing by building his own spaceship out of cardboard boxes. Bobby and I were so busy helping him that I forgot to snap photos for how to build your own spaceship from cardboard boxes, but I do have post build photos that will hopefully help you if you also want to build your own cardboard spaceship. It's a great STEM activity to celebrate the anniversary of the Moon landing!

The wings are the box's side flaps, and the nose and tail are made from cutting off the other flaps and forming them into triangles.

Jack packed some "cargo" and drew on some computer buttons and then some logos.

Added a paper cup inside the cardboard triangle tail; kind of looks like fuel burning, right?

And of course STEM Spark is going to do a giveaway to mark the occasion! One lucky STEM Spark reader in the US will win the Lego Creator 3in1 Shuttle Transporter!

Just use the Rafflecopter (link here) below to enter! Happy Moon Landing everyone! And happy STEM-ing!
