Christa McAuliffe Center: February Vacation Middle School Program
Tuesday, February 20, 2024
A one-day program for individual participants to engage in a space mission simulation in the newly-renovated Challenger Learning Center!
These hands-on STEM experiences take place in a fully-immersive Briefing Room, Space Station, and Mission Control led by trained program facilitators.
Surrounded by technology, each participant plays a unique role in the mission as the team completes assignments, manipulates hands-on labs, and copes with simulated emergencies. Teamwork is crucial! If one member fails to complete a job, the entire mission can be put at risk.
The mission is complemented by themed programming in the FSU Planetarium, including a full-dome film, and hands-on STEAM activities.
Registration is required.
