All equipment adapted from NASA’s astronaut program. Trainees will learn about the past, present and future of space exploration amid space artifacts to show real-world applications of STEM. Simulated space mission will be conducted and the trainees will have to solve anomalies and maintain their deep space exploration mission. The practice of clear communication during Underwater Astronaut Training is required. The STEM skills will be put to a test during many engineering challenges including Thermal Design Challenge and Rocketry Program.
