The NISE Network runs a series of free online workshops to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, and create more channels for partners to share their work and learn from each other directly.
Online Workshop: Moon Adventure Game - An introduction to a new challenge-based game for science and children's museums
Game players will work together to solve a series of challenges grounded in real science about living and doing research on the Moon. Members of the team that developed the game will introduce the game's learning objectives, provide an overview of the materials and professional development resources, and prototype testers will share their experiences including adaptations for early childhood visitors.
Physical copies of the Moon Adventure Game will be shipped in late October to all recipients of the NISE Network's 2020 Explore Science: Earth & Space toolkit. Digital versions of all materials will be available online for download.
