School, Youth Group and Community Programs

At the Space Foundation, we know that young people are inspired to learn through a variety of activities – and that space-related programs are powerful motivators. We deliver a broad range of programs that bring the excitement and inspiration of space to school groups, youth groups and communities. Some programs are offered in the Space Foundation Discovery Center and some are customized to specific locations.
