Summer-long Educational Fun for All Ages!

You can be a hero this summer! Our Summer of Discovery program is shaping up to put you in the role of a space hero. Whether it’s learning how to be an astronaut, solving problems as an engineer, learning about the wonders of the universe as a scientist, or inspiring others with your talent as a visionary, there is a summer of fun waiting for you at the Discovery Center. Our summer program will give you a chance to experience what it would be like to be a part of a space program. Every two weeks, new activities, guests and presentations will teach you all about what it takes to be a space hero. Join us this summer as we present “Heroes of Space” at the Discovery Center.

Super Kids Save the World

Presented by Children's Hospital Colorado

This exhibit is based on the British children’s book, George Saves the World by Lunchtime written by Jo Readman and illustrated by Ley Honor Roberts. The book was developed by the Eden Project, an educational charitylocated in Cornwall, England, which is dedicated to showing the importance of taking care of our world. George Saves the World by Lunchtime features an ordinary family, who in the course of their day save the world simply by making responsible choices. George, Flora and Grandpa demonstrate that by taking simple steps, families can become eco-friendly superheroes in their own communities.

Super Kids Save the World is presented locally by Pikes Peak Children's Museum and featured at the Space Foundation Discovery Center.
