You will participate in two simulated Space Shuttle Missions. You can be the Pilot, Commander, Flight Director, or Mission Specialist, or a variety of other positions. Your team will work together to achieve the objectives of the mission, whether it is completing a satellite repair, or construction on the ISS. You may be responsible for solving a problem through experimentation or creating a solution with your teammates. The mission experience is realistic, exciting and challenging!
As part of the program, you will also simulate walking on the Moon and working in the frictionless environment of space on our Astronaut Simulators. Weather permitting we will spend an afternoon at Aviation Challenge simulating what it would be like to land in the water with a parachute or be rescued from the water by a helicopter.
Not only is the Honeywell Educators at Space Academy an exciting professional development experience, it will also challenge you personally. Each team of 16 teachers is lead by a counselor who has attended our program and is a classroom teacher.
Lodging will be at the University of Alabama in Huntsville located near the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.
