Each section will last about an hour and a half and will be offered at either 4 p.m., 5:30 p.m., or 7 p.m. ET. During the program, campers will engage in hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math activities, perfect for elementary school-age students.

Each of the five Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex virtual sessions will be centered on NASA-based science and engineering and themed per day as follows:

  • Monday: Rocketry – Forward to the Moon 
    Campers complete hands-on missions based on the Apollo and Artemis programs
  • Tuesday: To the Moon and Back 
    By building an interactive, campers learn more about the Apollo program
  • Wednesday: Space Shuttle Program 
    Campers learn about the Space Shuttle Program in hands-on activities
  • Thursday: International Space Station 
    Mission challenges inspired by the International Space Station 
  • Friday: Life on Mars 
    Campers travel virtually to Mars, where they practice skills needed to live on another planet

The $65 (plus tax) per session cost includes a kit containing supplies for the activities, which will be mailed approximately one week prior to the start of the program. Additional Space After School kits are available for $25 (plus tax).
