Take your spring break to a really exotic location!

The Moon perhaps. Mars? Jupiter’s moon Europa? Maybe beyond our Solar System? Or get inside our Space Shuttle Trainer to see how astronauts journeyed to space for 30 years. It’s all possible without leaving your own comfort zone on Earth, thanks to the Museum’s Boeing Academy for STEM Learning special Spring Break programming, April 5-16.

The Academy offers a variety of Zoom programs for students in grades 2-12, including planetarium shows of the cosmos, tours inside of the Space Shuttle Trainer, and interactive spaceflight missions to the Moon, Mars, and Europa.
