Field Trip to the Moon
Field Trip to the Moon

Take your audience on a virtual trip to our closest neighbor in space with the AMNH’s Field Trip to the Moon. Feel the ground shake beneath you as you experience a thrilling NASA rocket launch, and orbit the Earth to get an astronaut's view of a sunrise in space.

Field Trip to the Moon is a virtual journey created using NASA engineering models and scientific data. Like NASA's astronauts, you will come face-to-face with the challenges and excitement of traveling through space to land on the Moon. Along the way, you'll discover some of the differences between the Earth and the Moon and what makes our planet unique and habitable.

This program is designed for small-format and portable domes only, and can be presented in live (no pre-recorded narration) or fully automated playback modes. A Companion Guide and Educators Guide (links are below) support your students' investigations in the classroom and at your facility.
