Locations and Activities

Junior Space Program has actively partnered with Space Center Houston and several other educational institutes to develop a course that inspires, motivates, and creates a positive learning environment for its students.

Students will have the opportunity to visit prestigious locations across Houston and take part in space mission simulations, scientific experiments and incentive courses.

Throughout the program, students will be encouraged to think independently and propose innovative solutions to problems, which they may encounter.
