Intermediate Students' Adventure to the Kennedy Space Center
The 6th-grade students journeyed to Cape Canaveral for their Kennedy Space Center Overnight Adventure.
The 6th-grade students journeyed to Cape Canaveral for their Kennedy Space Center Overnight Adventure. After enjoying an IMAX movie about our journey to Mars and taking off in a Shuttle Launch Experience Simulator, they met Astronaut Ken Cameron who has been on 3 shuttle missions orbiting the earth. Sleeping under the Shuttle Orbiter Atlantis was quite an adventure followed by an engineering exercise building model Mars Rovers to be fast and economical. Our field study ended with a tour of the launch pads where each of the trips to the moon and space have taken off. The students thrilled to have had the opportunity to learn about the United States's journey into space.
