PERSONAL DATA:

To teach the children of today about the fantastic accomplishments that have been achieved through the exploration of space making it easier for them to understand the complexities of space science and technology. This educating process will hopefully lead to the scientists and astronauts of tomorrow.
Programs on any one, or a combination of these subjects, are designed specifically for the age group or grade level that is involved, with special programs for advanced or gifted students.

    These programs are given using authentic spacecraft hardware, detailed scale models, actual flight documentation, charts, pictures, historical items and many other types of displays. Audio / visual items are available if you prefer. A notebook computer provides the participants with access to numerous pieces of space related software that dramatically display and illustrate space history and technology.

    Complex and complicated space concepts are explained by their comparison to normal every day activities.  Standard household items are used to help the student better comprehend the wonders and intricacies of space flight. In addition, the students’ experience is greatly enhanced because they are given the opportunity to handle actual spacecraft hardware, including items that have flown in space.

    Questions are taken and encouraged throughout and after the program and the tremendous importance of reading is highly stressed.
