You can't walk on the moon. But you can experience what it feels like.
Moon Walk gives children a sense of what it feels like to walk on the moon, where weak gravitational pull transforms every little step into a giant leap. It's the ultimate astro-dream come true!
Children sit in a harness that hangs down from a center pole and start spinning around the pole by jumping against a circular board base. The jumping motion simulates a reduced sense of gravity, while illustrating diverse physical elements such as Newton’s Third Law, gravity, kinetic energy and centripetal force.
Children can add to the fun by playing Moon Walk's version of "Simon Says". A lighting mechanism rests on top of the pole, and children can attempt to mimic the color lighting patterns by trying to land on the appropriate boards, which are colored accordingly.
Fun Moon Facts
Gravity on the earth is six times as strong as on the moon. The first man to step onto the moon was Neil Armstrong, who accomplished the feat in 1969. The diameter of the moon is roughly 3,480 kilometers, which is just over a quarter of the earth’s diameter.
