The sky is NOT the limit for your middle schooler this summer!! Scobee Education Center will be hosting local 6- 8 grade students for a week-long mission to all that Scobee has to offer!

Designed for the creative minds of “in-betweenagers”, the Explorers’ Academy campers are actively engaged in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) activities focused on the exploration of the Earth and Space sciences. Students will learn about living and working in space as they train like astronauts. Students will problem solve with robotics, coding activities and augmented reality to explore challenges on the International Space Station and distant lunar or Martian bases. Students will experience a simulated space flight in the Challenger Center and explore the deepest regions of the galaxy in the immersive full-dome Scobee Planetarium theater.
