Astronauts boldly go where no one has gone before… but how do they get home again? Learn why re-entering Earth’s atmosphere is so tricky and investigate properties of materials that can help the journey succeed with Discover Materials. Can you choose the best materials to steer a space shuttle safely back to Earth?

This is a workshop, so assemble the necessary materials and prepare to get hands-on.
