Students celebrate 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing at Gateway Science Center

BISMARCK, N.D. - In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, students at the Gateway to Science Center had the opportunity to learn what it takes to became an astronaut.

Children used flight simulators to see how astronauts train before missions, built and launched rockets.

Engineers, pilots and rocket enthusiasts say they hope this inspires the next generation.

Communities come out and support us and to celebrate a great day today and hopefully we'll inspire some kids that persue careers, STEM careers and maybe an astronaut in the future," said Janet Rosario, Gateway Science STEM Leader.

The next STEM Spectacular will feature more science on October 12th.
