The Space Age on the Space Coast

Daily Schedule

A National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks Grant Program

The National Council for History Education invites K-12 educators from across the United States to apply for “The Space Age on the Space Coast,” a unique professional opportunity that will immerse participants in the political, cultural, and scientific history of the Cape Canaveral region of central Florida. 

This NEH Landmarks workshop will be offered two times: July 11-15, 2022, and July 25-29, 2022. The Astronauts Memorial Foundation on the campus of the Kennedy Space Center will serve as participants' “home base.” While there you will have the opportunity to interact with historians, education specialists, astronauts, and engineers. 

The Space Coast is—first and foremost—the starting point for America’s exploration of the universe, but the region also provides visitors with the opportunity to investigate the intersections of race, gender, politics, technology, and the environment. We hope you will consider joining us as we explore these frontiers!

Planned Site Experiences: Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, the Apollo/Saturn V Rocket Center, Cape Canaveral Space Force Base, Cape Canaveral Lighthouse, Astronaut Family Beachhouse, Harry and Harriette Moore Cultural Complex, and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.


The Space Race on the Space Coast has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy demands wisdom.
