Smithsonian TechQuest: Race to the Moon is a FREE alternate reality game at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. Set in the thrilling era of early spaceflight, the game explores the exciting race to space by the first American astronauts.

Your mission: Develop a rocket to launch into space, travel over 200,000 miles to the moon, and land safely.

Begin the Smithsonian TechQuest: Race to the Moon challenge with a short orientation from one of our specially trained Explainers including a video setting the stage for your grand adventure. Then, head out into the James S. McDonnell Space Hangar to participate in hands-on activities about launching a rocket to the Moon, setting a course to the Moon, and landing safely on the Moon. At each station, you will gather information and use your problem-solving skills to find clues leading to a computer code that will aid you on your mission. Finally, enter each computer code one at a time into a special computer interface. When all three computer codes have been entered correctly you can officially launch and land on the Moon!

Orientations are offered at regular intervals between 10:30 am and 2:30 pm. Visitors play at their own pace. Overall program time is estimated at about 60-90 minutes.

Smithsonian TechQuest is designed primarily for families with children ages 10 to 14, but anyone can play.

Smithsonian TechQuest is made possible by the generous support of McDonalds USA, LLC.
