Subjects: Mathematics, Science

In this resource, pupils will spend a day recording how much water they use for different activities. This is followed by an experimental activity in the classroom, where they will use pre-prepared “lunar ice cores” and filter these to get water. They will use the results of the first and second activity to calculate how much lunar ice they would need to dig or drill to give them enough water for one day. The resource suggests discussions of water use and recycling, both on Earth and in space.

Teacher’s guide and students worksheets: English, Danish, German (teacher guide), German (students worksheets).

Age range: 8 – 12 years old

This classroom resource is part of a set of resources developed by ESA’s Education Office in collaboration with ESEROs to support the Moon Camp project.

This Airbus Foundation Discovery Space animation explains how to get water on the Moon and make it last using a recycling system. More animations here.
