After dinner you can dance the night away to the music from a live band.  There is no need to purchase a ticket for the event if you are registered as a conference presenter or attendee. If you would like to purchase an additional ticket for a guest, the cost is $40. No children permitted at  banquet. Join us as we celebrate old and new friends, a rich history of space exploration and your role in educating the space explorers of tomorrow.

SEEC ON FACEBOOK!

Please join us on Facebook on both our Space Center Houston Education page and the SEEC event joined with it. We hope to create an interactive forum of discussion, frequently asked questions and a way for all participants to maintain a relationship throughout the entire year instead of just at our conference.
