Expedition

Expedition is designed for your entire classroom to experience an amazing hands-on educational adventure. The program is correlated to the State of Alabama’s Course of Study for Science and Mathematics and utilizes the excitement of spaceflight to teach scientific concepts as well as teamwork, leadership and decision-making.

Through hands-on history and science briefings, trainees discover that the space program, like other scientific endeavors, requires the efforts of a wide variety of people and that its accomplishments are the result of incremental tests and experiments.

Trainees complete a simulated Mars mission, build and launch model rockets (weather permitting), experience an amazing IMAX® or digital movie and explore the U.S. Space and Rocket Center®!

Expedition is a daytime-only program that begins on Monday and ends with a graduation ceremony on Friday.

Check-In: Monday 9 a.m.
