The two workshops funded by this grant (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 to explore the ways in which the politics, science, and culture intersected in a unique geographical location from the 1950's through today.
Our scholars and presenters include experts on space history from the Kennedy Space Center, as well as astronauts and rocket scientists. Teachers will learn firsthand about the experiences of
those involved in the space industry as well as parallel movements affecting the space coast like the Civil Rights Movement and the environmental movement.
