Lunar Research Base

Students were given the opportunity to become a scientist/astronaut and learn how light plays a role in space exploration.


The LRB Project was an immersive simulation using an inquiry-based learning approach that fostered team building and introduced Fairfield Intermediate 5th grade students to STEM careers.    Participants discovered the critical role light plays in space exploration and investigated properties of the electromagnetic spectrum.  The project included a simulated space mission (iMISSION) in which students immersed into the role of an astronaut or space scientist and challenged to apply STEM skills in a fun, unique, and challenging way.
