As NASA plans its return to the Moon and further human exploration into the solar system, how will astronauts be protected from the hazards of space?  This online workshop covers the science behind the Moon Adventure Game and several of the 2020 Explore Science: Earth & Space Toolkit B activities. After a brief overview of how this toolkit focuses on the moon, our guest presenters, Christina Lim and Jessica Lee from NASA Ames Research Center, will step us through how astronauts will survive in space long-term, Michael Evans from NASA Johnson Space Center will discuss the many hazards of space—followed by Q&A. Darrell Porcello from the NISE Network will finish the workshop with a review of included toolkit materials for the game and activities that will help facilitators make additional NASA content connections with visitors.
