Surveyor™ is a great way for larger groups to experience the excitement of spaceflight! Surveyor is a one-night, structured educational adventure that allows students, educators and chaperones the opportunity to explore the U.S. Space & Rocket Center®.

Trainees in the Surveyor program prepare for a tumble spin on the Multi-Axis Trainer and experience the Five Degrees of Freedom Chair! They see an IMAX® or a digital movie in our on-site theaters, and build and launch paper rockets. They also have a science briefing that is correlated to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) national education standards. Groups have the option to begin on Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Saturday. Adult chaperones participate in Surveyor.
