FOR AGES 12-14
EXPERIENCE THE ULTIMATE ADVENTURE!
Stand up to the test of simulated space missions, rocket launches and realistic astronaut simulators!
Space Academy for ages 12 - 14 is an exciting, five-night adventure that is both educational and exhilarating. The program incorporates real-world applications of science, technology, engineering and math education. Trainees prepare to become the new generation of lunar explorers, with hands-on activities that place them in the role of spacecraft designers/mission controllers and astronauts.
Exciting challenges await in the Space Station Mission Complex. Technically-challenging anomalies task trainees to use all their knowledge/teamwork and critical thinking skills to solve problems and save the mission! Many fascinating future career possibilities are introduced during the week.
