Education Programs

Education and The Next Giant Leap

The Manned Space Flight Education Foundation’s education department at Space Center Houston is among the nation’s leading science-education resources. Our educational programs are based on national science standards and focus on science, technology, engineering and math to help adults and children think critically, learn about the past, present and future of America’s space flight program and build a greater understanding of the world.

NASA’s journey to Mars is the inspiration for our educational theme, called the Next Giant Leap. The children we teach and inspire today could be among the first humans to walk on Mars. Discover and explore the path to Mars with an incredible season of exhibits, events and educational programs below.
