The Moon Adventure Game is a collaborative hands-on experience where players work together to solve a series of challenges grounded in real science about living and doing research on the Moon. The game was part of the 2020 Explore Science: Earth and Space toolkit Part B, and in this workshop, we will hear from a number of partners who are using the game to engage their audiences in a variety of ways. Learn how museums have integrated this experience into camps, adapted parts for use with preschool-aged audiences, and even combined the game with a live-action version of the popular game Among Us! We’ll also discuss ways that presenters were able to use this hands-on experience safely during the restrictions presented to museum programming during COVID-19. Join us and start planning how you’ll use your Moon Adventure Game this summer!
