New Policies & Procedures

Space Center Houston is excited to welcome back students for our Stars & STEM Program. To ensure a safe environment for our students and crew members, we ask all participants to review our new policies and procedures before participating.

  • Event capacity: The program capacity is limited to ensure social distancing can be met and sanitizing practices can be implemented.
  • Face coverings: All students, chaperones and staff are required to wear a face covering while at Space Center Houston. The only time face coverings can be removed is when eating or drinking while being stationary. If you arrive without a face covering, one can be purchased onsite.
  • Meals: Dinner will be provided in The Food Lab. All food must be consumed in The Food Lab. Bottled water is allowed throughout the center.
  • Activities: Our activities have been designed to ensure a safe environment for learning.
    • In order to maintain social distancing, activities will be conducted in large open areas of the center.
    • Activity areas will allow for all participants to remain at least 6 feet apart.
    • Participants will sit at opposite ends of a 8-foot table.
    • Supplies will be prepared and placed at the tables before the activities begin.
    • Participants will remain at assigned stations throughout the activity portion.
    • Participants will be assigned a restroom based on their activity location during the evening portion of the program.

All chaperones are required to review the Stars & STEM guide, which includes program policies and procedures.
