Artemis I will be the first integrated test of NASA’s Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System rocket, and the ground systems at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Artemis I will be an uncrewed flight test that will provide a foundation for human deep space exploration, and demonstrate our commitment and capability to extend human existence to the Moon and beyond.
All resources, participation, and registration are FREE. Register to let NASA know that you're hosting a watch party or virtually participating! Registration will provide communications about launch schedule changes, information about launch related activities, and access to curated launch resources.
The 2022 LiftOff Summer Institute is a weeklong training event at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, sponsored by NASA's Texas Space Grant Consortium. This year’s theme is "The Artemis Generation." Attendees will explore NASA’s plans to land the first woman and first person of color on the Moon. Participants will attend presentations by NASA scientists and engineers, tour NASA facilities, and receive hands-on, inquiry-based classroom activities aligned to education standards. Applicants must be U.S. citizens currently employed as classroom teachers of grades 5-12 with at least one year of teaching experience prior to the event.
Application Deadline: March 7, 2022
Institute Dates: June 26 – July 1, 2022
K-12 students are challenged to design a robot that can dig and move lunar soil from one area of the lunar South Pole to a holding container near a future Artemis Moon base. Students can create at least one drawing of their robot’s design with a written summary that explains the design in 150 words or less.

NASA is teaming up with LEGO Education to bring students and teachers an out-of-this-world STEAM learning experience. Build to Launch puts students in the shoes of NASA engineers, scientists and astronauts as they explore the technology, STEAM concepts and careers behind the Artemis I mission to the Moon.
Join the all new LEGO Space Team and their Artemis I counterparts for a 10-week interactive learning adventure.
NASA and the LEGO Group have a long history of collaboration on projects that engage children and adults alike to encourage interest in STEM fields and space exploration. In addition to providing inspiration for several NASA-themed sets over the past several years, NASA has recently partnered with LEGO Education to engage with thousands of educators and students through “Build to Launch,” 10-week digital learning series exploring the technology, STEM concepts and careers behind the Artemis I mission to the Moon.
For more than 50 years, Snoopy has contributed to the excitement for NASA human spaceflight missions, helping inspire generations to dream big. NASA has shared an association with Charles M. Schulz and Snoopy since Apollo missions and continues under Artemis with new educational activities. Up next -- Snoopy will ride along as the zero gravity indicator on Artemis I.
No matter your background, NASA invites YOU to participate in Artemis Student Challenges. These unique opportunities for high school and college students build foundational knowledge on technical topics and provide hands-on research design activities that directly contribute to the Artemis mission. Challenges are open in the Fall for registration and/or proposals.
