Space Center Houston

On March 20, Space Center Houston is hosting virtual campouts for spring break for those unable to visit the center. 

Those who participate in the program will be able to stargaze and explore the stars in real-time. The program also allows participants to use household items to make science come to life through engaging hands-on activities. 

Normally, events like this are paid programs, but due to the financial difficulties from the COVID-19 pandemic, Space Center Houston is offering this program to anyone who would like to participate and ask you pay whatever you are comfortable playing. 

If you are not able to pay, please enter "0" in the blank during registration.
