Broadneck 2020 Space Camp Trip

Space Camp

The Broadneck Bees are going to Space Camp!

May 8th-10th, 2020

The Space Camp Pathfinder program is a truly an exciting opportunity for our fourth and fifth graders!

The Pathfinder program at the Huntsville, Alabama US Space and Rocket Center, is a three day, two night opportunity for students to explore space in a hands-on way. Throughout the experience, students will work in teams while participating in a program that includes a space mission, space history, and astronaut training on authentic astronaut simulators. During the simulated space mission, trainees work in mission control or launch as a part of the flight crew.

One of the many unique things about this program is that parents are not just encouraged chaperone but also to participate. Parents get to participate and learn with their kids as the Space Camp staff lead the activities.
