Apollo 11 to STEM and The Next Giant Leap
July 21 @ 8:00 am - 4:45 pm$10 – $40
The Macarthur Astronomical Society are teaming up with One Giant Leap Australia (OGLA) to present an all-day event called “Apollo 11 to STEM and The Next Giant Leap”
NASA’s logo for the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing Celebrations is NEXT GIANT LEAP, which ties in nicely with OGLA!
We have six current and former scientists from NASA/JPL who will run a series of seven STEM talks around our showing of “The Dish”. The film will be timed to coincide with the timing of that ‘One small step for Man’ at 12:56:15! Lunch will be available for purchase after the film.
We kick off at 9am with a debate called “Moon or Mars?”involving all the guest speakers and the audience.
And after the film and lunch will run twin streams of six STEM interactive lectures.
Closing approximately 4.30pm
Tickets are $20.00/adult (18+): $40.00/family (2+2); $10.00/ Child (-18) Booking through https://www.trybooking.com/BCBQU
