Museum to Present Moon Adventure Game in March and April

February 24, 2021

02/22/2021

JONESBORO – Throughout the months of March and April, Arkansas State University Museum will present an escape room-inspired gallery activity: Moon Adventure Game. 

Guests who engage in the Moon Adventure Game will learn how living in an outpost on the Moon would be dangerous.  To “survive,” players must solve a series of challenges grounded in science, stated Jill Kary, curator of education.

The escape room experience is free to the public.

The premise of the Moon Adventure Game is a fictional story based on science and NASA research. Players will assume the role of astronauts living and conducting research in an outpost on the Moon, and will learn what people might need while there.

Challenges reflect scientific concepts connected to lunar exploration.  As players conduct research, catastrophe strikes and significant damage to their essential life support systems results.  At that point, players will need to work together to quickly restore the necessary systems to survive.

The Moon Adventure Game is based upon work developed by the National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Net) through a grant funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

COVID-19 safety procedures implemented by ASU Museum have been made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) CARES: Cultural Organization program.

Museum hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 10 a.m. — 3 p.m.  For additional details, one may contact Kary at [email protected] or (870) 972-2074.
