Description: High School Students: Race Lunar Rovers in Windsor on July 20th Windsor, VT . . . Can’t make it to the moon to race a lunar rover? High school students have a chance to experience the next best thing at the American Precision Museum in Windsor, Vermont, on Saturday, July 20 beginning at 10:00 a.m. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, there is no admission fee for participating in the lunar rover challenge, but prior registration is recommended: 802-674-5781. Energetic and “skyward looking” high school students are invited to build and race lunar rovers in teams that will compete at the museum. There’s space for up to 20 students and five race teams. All materials will be supplied. Lunar racing is FREE, but pre-registration is recommended. Students ages 8-12 who join the Junior Apprentice Club can learn to design and 3D print compressed air rockets, which will be launched during the lunar rover races on July 20. Activities for the entire family include: experimenting with simple robotics and building rubber band racers and windmills using mechanical assembly kits. Stop by the working machine shop, where this year’s skilled interns will be demonstrating the use of historic and modern machines. To join a Lunar Rover Team, the Junior Apprentice Club, or for additional information about the Apollo 11 Celebration, please contact the museum at 802-674-5781. This American Precision Museum event is funded by the Vermont Space Grant Consortium under NASA Cooperative Agreement NNX15AP86H.
