The Indianapolis Children’s Museum offers a FreeField Guide to the Universe” and an interactive game that allows kids to try their hand at building and maintaining a space station for astronauts.

When you get to the website, place your cursor over the image of the book or the astronaut to access:

  1. Field Guide To The Universe – Get information on the Solar System, learn about various space craft, discover astronomers in ancient times, medieval times, the age of enlightenment, and today!
  2. Living In Space: Interactive Game – Answer questions correctly to try and earn the rank of “Mission Commander.” You’ll learn the answers to:
    •What’s the best air (gas mixture) to breathe in space?
    •How much water should you bring to drink?
    •What combination of protein, carbs, calories and fat should the food you bring contain?
    •What kind of space toilet will you need?
    •What’s the best power source to use?
    •How will you bathe in space?
    •How many oxygen-producing plants will you need?

At the end of the game you can print out a certificate of completion.

Enjoy!
