Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is now offering free admission to teachers throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands through the Educator Study Pass.
More teachers than ever before can learn about the past, present, and future of space exploration through NASA’s lesson plans, videos, and interactive games that teach STEM programs of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
“The Educator Study Pass is one of the many programs we offer as a way to give back to our community,” said Therrin Protze, chief operating officer of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. “Teachers play an important role in educating the future generation of scientists, engineers and even astronauts. Expanding the Educator Study Pass allows us to show our support to more teachers than ever before.”
During their visit, teachers can experience the new Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex, along with Imax movies, the Astronaut Encounter, bus tours, and more.
Explore & Learn mobile learning creates field trip experiences via the Space Chase! app, with additional STEM learning offered through private educational programs, Overnight Adventures, Camp KSC, and more.
Teachers who would like to take advantage of the Educator Study Pass offer should bring one of the following to Will Call, located at the visitor complex’s entrance:
- An active teaching certificate from the United States, Puerto Rico, or the U.S. Virgin Islands.
- A badge with a photo that shows the title Teacher or Educator.
- A letter on school letterhead, dated and signed by the principal listing the name(s) of the teacher(s), stating they are an educator at the school.
There are no exceptions to this requirement.
