In the NISE Network's new Moon Adventure 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.
