Space Center Houston

What better way to learn about science and space than in the place where space travel began- the Space Center Houston. Schools can take part in a week-long Space University, where students will get behind the scenes tours, experience zero G, and learn what it is like to be an astronaut and compete. The Exploration Academy is a 16-week 2-term program that partners students with a school in the global community where they will work together to build devices that address problems like clean water, air, and energy. Scouts can camp-in at the center, and enjoy activities that are only available to them.
