Educator Appreciation Month

Inspiring the next generation is hard work. Educators, take a break this spring and experience the wonders of space exploration for yourself. As part of Educator Appreciation Month in March at Space Center Houston, education personnel get in free.

It’s our education foundation’s way to salute those who are teaching the country’s future leaders.

Through March 31, actively employed educators at public and private secondary and primary schools, universities and colleges will receive free admission by showing a current, valid school ID at any of the Space Center Houston ticket windows.

Friends and family of the educators can save $5 off regular admission in advance by purchasing tickets online using a discount code available to our social media followers and readers of our electronic communications. Connect with us to receive special communications about programs, exhibits and more before the general public. The digital discount code for educators’ friends and family will be sent upon enrolling.

Space exploration can be inspiring, but Space Center Houston also provides lightyears of fun during Cosmic Spring Break, presented by the City of Webster.

Take a break from shaping the next generation of explorers to experience the wonders of space exploration.

Grow your math powers by a factor of fun in our all-new spring exhibit Math Moves!, also made possible by the City of Webster. Created by the Science Museum of Minnesota, this rich and engaging exhibit presents more than 20 interactive activities where visitors playfully investigate ratios and proportions. Enacting math can be a powerful tool for exploration and understanding.

Before the school year ends, teachers can bring their students on a field trip to Space Center Houston at discounted rates. We welcome classes throughout the year. They also can experience a virtual Martian sunset, climb into a simulated Orion capsule and feel the texture of rock cliffs inspired by the red planet in our brand-new interactive exhibit, Mission Mars

Take a break, relax this spring and visit us for free at Space Center Houston. It’s our way of saying thanks.
