Apollo 13 Scrubber (approximately 2 hours)
Houston, we have a problem! If you remember the blockbuster movie, Apollo 13, then you will enjoy this team program designed by the Earth & Space Expedition Center staff. Your group must become quick-thinking engineers to design, build, test and re-test a critical CO2 filter to save the lives of the crew of the Apollo 13. Using only the materials available aboard the space craft, the challenge is to think "outside of the box" and construct this critical component and thus save the crew from perishing. The question is, Can you do it in time?
Material Engineering Challenges
Heat Shield Materials Challenger (approximately 2 hours)
The next generation of passenger air travel at speeds faster than sound. Your team has been selected to submit a design for the new surface shield used for these planes. In order to win the contract, you must build a shield capable of surviving the heat of reentry and extreme environments of earth's upper atmosphere. It must also be as economical and lightweight as possible. The fun begins as your group designs the heat shield and puts it to the ultimate test, two minutes in front of a blow torch.
Stardust (Approximately 2 hours)
STARDUST is an engineering team builder where participants will design a version of the STARDUST probe to fly through the coma of a comet, collecting material for scientists to analyze on Earth. Each team designs and builds a model of their probe using the parts available while trying to maintain their budget. Once the STARDUST probe is complete, the teams present their probe to our Flight Director and try to sell their design concept.
Our E-Missions are approximately 3 hours long, and can be held at your facility or ours. These experiences are designed for groups between 8 and 25 participants in size. Our E-Missions are $1000 per session.

Your group will be entrusted to save the lives of the residents of the Caribbean island of Montserrat, home to one of the world's most active volcanoes. Based on a real life scenario, this team building program will have your group tracking the lava flows of the volcano, estimating the path of a Category 5 hurricane, and devising a plan to get the residents out of harm's way, and communicating with a command central to make the rescue operation run smoothly.
