Johnson Space Center
for Kansas Teachers
November 11-16, 2013
The workshop you have been waiting for is here at last.
This November, you are cordially invited to join fellow educators and Cosmosphere staff for a visit to Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, where you will witness firsthand the continuing health and vitality of America’s manned space program.
Join us November 11-16 for a once in a lifetime experience. We begin with 2 days at the Cosmosphere honing your knowledge of space history, rocketry and astronomy while training to fly a simulated Shuttle Mission. Then, it’s off to Houston, where we will tour historic Johnson Space Center, the always exciting Ellington Field, Space Center Houston, the Neutral Buoyancy Lab, Mission Control, and the brand new mission support group SGT, Inc (which provides program support to the Constellation program). Later, just for fun, dinner at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company and an evening of relaxation and shopping on beautiful Kemah Boardwalk.
Thanks to a generous award from The Kansas Space Grant, your cost for 5 nights lodging, all meals and bus transportation to Houston is $450 for double occupancy, $800 for single. Graduate credit will be available from Friends University for an additional $80.
If you are unable to do the full 5 days, you may join us for the Houston part of the trip only. The cost would be the same and we would not be able to offer graduate credit for the shortened program.
To register, please contact Laurie at email@example.com, 800-397-0330 ext 323.
Registration Deadline is October 27.
