With parents looking for more online educational activities for their children during this unprecedented time, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is offering free, online content designed to engage with children in Elementary through High School.
The education team at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will share daily Facebook Live video experiences as well as shorter segments that will each pair with an at-home activity. Covering topics such as living in space and on Mars, tours of Space Shuttle Atlantis and the Astronaut Training Experience, rocketry 101, and more. Hands on activities will involve everyday items that can be found around the house, such as using straws, paper towel tubes, and rubber bands to build and launch a rocket.
Presentations will take place Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m. ET for younger children, and 1 p.m. for young adults. There will also be a Q&A portion at the end of each presentation. The interactive presentations can be viewed on their Facebook page. The visitor complex also has downloadable activities on their website.
