The Space Race on the Space Coast

Landmark Locations

A National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks Grant Program

The two workshops funded by this grant, which will take place from July 11-15, 2022 and July 25-29, 2022, will focus on the unique history and culture of Florida's Space Coast. This project will allow K-12 educators of multiple disciplines from around the country explore the ways in which the politics, science, and culture intersected in a unique geographical location from the 1950's through today. 

Below are the locations that we're scheduled to visit during the week. We're pleased to provide you with a dynamic range of opportunities to visit on The Space Coast and to help our participants better understand the range of historical issues to address in examining The Space Race.

The Landmarks of American History and Culture program supports a series of one-week workshops for K-12 educators across the nation to enhance and strengthen humanities teaching at the K-12 level. Projects employ a place-based approach and are designed to offer educators a unique and compelling opportunity to deepen and expand their knowledge of the diverse histories, cultures, traditions, languages, and perspectives of the American people.
