Cheltenham Science Group: Lunar Lander Competition



  • All The Family
  • Under 5s
  • School Age






Throughout the summer holidays, you will have the opportunity to engineer a lunar lander from recycled materials on Wednesdays. What special features will your design include to keep your egg safe?

A photograph will be taken before and after it is tested so that the entries can be judged in September. If your landing is successful, you can take your model home. We will have some materials for you to use but if you can intercept any interesting rubbish before it goes in the recycling, bring it along.

You can drop-in at any time between 10am and 4pm. You can also explore our permanent collection of hands-on exhibits.

Wednesday 24th July - Wednesday 28th August

10am - 4pm

This is included in normal admission: £2 per person (aged over 4), £7.50 for a family (up to 5 people) or FREE with your annual family pass (which costs £20 and gives up to 5 people unlimited access to the science centre for 12 months).
