Our center is an amazing place, and our guests find some of the most photogenic sides of it. In this Fan Friday blog series, we are going to explore Space Center Houston from your point of view.
The 26th annual Space Exploration Educators Conference (SEEC) was held at the center this month. Educators from across the world joined us for inspiring keynote presentations, interactive sessions and engaging tours. Relive the experience through the eyes of the educators, presenters, and volunteers who attended!

Trying on spacesuit parts during a #SEEC2020 session with NASA #Orion team member Paul Boehm. Incredible presentation with hands-on activities within any classroom’s budget. @SpaceCenterHou pic.twitter.com/AYSF9REr7g

Presenting at #SEEC2020 with Elise Campbell was so inspiring and fun! We taught teachers lessons they can bring back to their students. Our session included ways to keep students engaged, two Moon 2024 Mission songs, two astronaut procedures lessons, and a space habitat designing activity. We will make the lessons public soon! We also attended sessions featuring virtual reality, Mom scuba dove during a spacewalk training class, and we danced to an astronaut band. What an amazing time! The picture of me holding a yellow cup (swipe) was from our session when I explained how students can use red, yellow, and green cups to communicate their needs. Some elementary teachers use this strategy in their room already. I described to teachers that flight controllers in mission control use a similar strategy to communicate to the flight director their system’s needs. Ex: green cup for “go for launch” ready to move on to the next lesson, yellow cup for “in work” not done completing activity yet, and red cup “no go” I need help from the teacher.
Awesome #SEEC2020 event last night, hanging out with newly graduated astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli & listening to the astronaut band Max Q, with Cady Coleman, Chris Hadfield, & Dan Burbank among others at @SpaceCenterHou. #SpaceExplorationEducatorsConference #NASA #JohnsonSpaceCenter pic.twitter.com/pekpednkQ9
