The Museum will open at 12pm on Weds, Nov. 30 and will be closed on Thurs, Dec. 1 for student programming.
Moonshot Museum, Penn State’s Readiness Institute, Astrobotic, and the Pennsylvania Department of Education invite Pennsylvania students in grades 3-12 to participate in a statewide poster contest celebrating America’s return to the Moon this year, an achievement powered by Pennsylvanians.
How to Participate
Students are encouraged to create a poster that reflects one or more of the following aspects of the Peregrine mission:
A panel of judges from across the STEAM disciplines in Pennsylvania, including art and science educators and space industry professionals will judge submissions ahead of Astrobotic’s launch in late 2022. Winning entries will be selected across three grade ranges: Elementary (Grades 3-4), Middle School (5-8) and High School (9-12). Pennsylvania will be divided into major geographic regions, each consisting of multiple counties. A regional 1st place award certificate will go to a winning entry in each region.
State Award Winners will be selected across a range of categories, such as: Science Communication, Entrepreneurial Spirit, and Creativity. State Award Winners will be invited to a VIP Tour at Astrobotic Headquarters in Pittsburgh, around the time of the Peregrine mission if schedules permit. Travel will be at the winner’s own expense.
All poster contest submissions will be included in a digital payload on a future mission to the Moon!
