Visiting the Astronaut Hall of Fame

Just a couple hour drive north of the Miami Science Museum is one of the most iconic places in the U.S. Space Program – NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, where shuttles and rockets have been launched into space since the 1960s. Just down the road from the KSC Visitor Center is the Astronaut Hall of Fame, which celebrates the men and women who have ventured into the frontiers of space. Recently, staff from the Museum’s Center for Interactive Learning visited Kennedy Space Center and the Astronaut Hall of Fame to meet with their informal science education team and contract partners from Delaware North, in order to explore possibilities for collaborating on the development of educational programs and interactive exhibits. The Museum has already been the recipient of two recent NASA grants, including Youth EXPO: Youth Exploring the Potential of Virtual Worlds, funded by the Competitive Program for Science Museums and Planetariums; and EarthLab Miami, a NASA Summer of Innovation Capacity Building grant. What an awesome potential opportunity to combine forces!
