Spaceport Exploration Center has been providing STEM education for nearly 10 years. In that time, we have become Indiana's largest STEM curriculum developer and provider. Spaceport is a National and State award winner for delivery of education, including the NASA Top Star Award. This project will transform an existing class room into what will look like a space station lab. It will include the basic paint, graphics and accents, but well beyond that is the advanced technology embedded within. Robotics station, drone (explorer) station, high altitude and Cubesat stations. During the school year, students will begin to learn the scientific basis for exploration and begin to build real experiments that will fly on different platforms throughout the year. We put a brief example of one flight video, created by students, that shows one activity. We are seeking an additional $5000.00 to help cover the cost of lab and equipment that was simply not covered by the budget originally set. The funds will add more exciting stations and tech that will give students more tools to expand their experiments.
Q: What equipment is expected to be purchased with these funds?
A: We will be acquiring some LED flat screens, tablets and workstation equipment for projects.
