Space Center Houston’s Fall Home School Day Fuels

Science Learning

HOUSTON – Discover space science through innovative, exclusive activities and special guest speakers at Space Center Houston’s fall Home School Day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 19.

This incredible event provides the opportunity for home-schooled families to learn about space exploration and engage in an unforgettable day of education and inspiring entertainment.

The center offers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see modules from both the first and last lunar landings under one roof for the first time. Students will experience the world premiere of the new fall exhibit Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission. The Apollo 11 command module and artifacts from the first lunar landing are leaving the Smithsonian for the first time since 1972. The Apollo 17 command module from the last lunar landing is in the museum’s permanent collection.

Meet retired NASA astronaut Jerry Ross, hear from experts on a variety of topics including why Earth has a moon, the composition of the moon, the future of lunar research and what the Apollo missions taught us about the moon. Experience hands-on learning in interactive Pop-Up Science Labs where students can see live demonstrations, participate in robotics challenges, conduct experiments and so much more.
