The U.S. Space & Rocket Center is proud to salute teachers for their hard work and dedication by providing free admission to educators and one guest Saturday, Jan. 19, through Monday, Jan. 21. Teachers will need to present their educator identification, and homeschool teachers should provide documentation of their umbrella organization. All pre-service and active educators at all grade levels (daycare – pre-K – post secondary – graduate level) are welcome, including public school, private schools, homeschools and librarians.
In addition to the Rocket Center’s world-class collection of space hardware, teachers are able to explore the “Spark!Lab” hands-on engineering exhibit as well as have a final look at “Alien Worlds and Androids.” In this exhibit, which ends Jan. 21, guests join scientists in their search for alien life in and beyond our solar system and discover strange alien-like creatures found here on Earth.
Teachers may also attend a free Educator Information Workshop Monday, Jan. 21, at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. This workshop covers upcoming U.S. Space & Rocket Center educator opportunities and the 2019 educational event calendar. The first 100 teachers to attend one of the three workshops will receive a free U.S. Space & Rocket Center swag bag.
