Pupils' interest and imagination are stimulated by the prospect of humans exploring the final frontier, leading edge technology involving spectacularly powerful rockets and the superb role models of astronauts.

About the Kennedy Space Centre

The Kennedy Space Centre (KSC) is the world’s leading Spaceport. It is from KSC that astronauts were sent to the moon and someday will be sent to Mars and beyond.

These days NASA launches astronauts into Earth orbit aboard the Space Shuttle to live and work on the International Space Station. On the space station the astronauts perform hundreds of experiments to improve life on Earth and discover new ways to send humans to Mars.

KSC is based in a huge wildlife reserve that is home to alligators, armadillos, manatees, and an enormous range of other wildlife. Its neighbour is Cape Canaveral, the home of the early US space programme and the current launch site for satellites and probes that explore other planets and the far reaches of the solar system.
