Innovation Circle


As the Official Visitor Center of NASA Johnson Space Center, Space Center Houston has the access and vision to shape the future of our region by engaging and inspiring the next generation of explorers, innovators, and problem-solvers.

Space Center Houston is a non-profit organization and relies on the generosity of others to engage thousands of students, educators, and professionals annually in a broad range of learning programs.

Innovation Circle at Space Center Houston is a group of visionary leaders dedicated to growing and deepening Space Center Houston’s impact through education. Annual contributions of $1,500 or more directly support Space Center Houston’s efforts to provide access to transformative science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning experiences.

Innovation Circle supporters enjoy the benefits available to Patron level members as well as invitations to intimate gatherings with industry experts and curated experiences that go deeper into the latest developments in space exploration.
