    Abstract

    The goal of this project was to explore the potential in a lunar base exhibit to enhance science education. A Lunar Base (circa 2069) architectural competition sponsored by SHIFTboston provided us the opportunity to examine several promising concepts when the AIAA New England Chapter assigned us to reevaluate 89 entries based on technical feasibility and technological elegance. The results were presented to numerous audiences ranging from aerospace specialists to 5th graders. We persuaded SHIFTboston to run a second architectural competition with a lunar theme- this time focusing on a simulated lunar base as a science exhibit designed for grades 5-10.
