This month, students explore if they have the right stuff to become astronauts. Discussion includes education and personality traits of successful astronaut candidates, types of work done in space, basic living in space topics and teamwork. Students work in teams to mix chemicals in a glovebox just like astronauts. The goal is to find the right combination of chemicals to make fuel to launch a rocket.
The cost is $25 per person, and reservations, paid in advance, are required. Limited space is available. The deadline to register is May 24. For reservations, call 1-800-637-7223, 256-721-7140 or email us.
