And activities based on the famous "square peg round hole" solution that saved the Apollo 13 mission will also be an educational opportunity offered by Cosmosphere educators at the booth.
Further STEM education will be delivered by the Cosmosphere at 2 p.m. on Sunday when the Cosmosphere educators take to the PEZ with live demonstrations on everything from liquid fueled rockets to the science of living in space.
