Be the Astronaut

Experience the wonders of space and plan a space mission, learn about the technology and math skills required to be an astronaut and fly spaceships, pilot landers and drive rovers in this exciting exhibit.

Produced by Eureka Exhibits and designed by NASA engineers, the exhibit aims to put students in the pilot’s seat of a spaceship while providing a birds-eye view of real astronaut pre-training with the use of touch screen stations, artifacts and interactive simulator pods built to look like space capsules.

The Be the Astronaut exhibit will be on display at the IMAG History and Science Center until April 2020. Entry into the exhibit will be included with general admission.
