Space Exploration Rocketry

Are you looking to learn more about rocketry and space history? If so, there is no better place to learn it all than at Kennedy Space Center, NASA’s launch headquarters whether you are a Boy Scout troop, a Girl Scout or an aspiring space explorer.

This full-day program teaches the purpose of space exploration with discussion covering its history, exciting careers, and the science behind launching rockets. Participants will design collector cards featuring their favorite space pioneer and learn about the different rocket parts as they build and launch their own rocket.
