The education team at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is now sharing daily Facebook Live videos, along with shorter segments, which will each pair with an at-home activity that covers topics like living in space and on Mars, tours of Space Shuttle Atlantis and the Astronaut Training Experience, rocketry 101, and more.

Hands-on activities will involve everyday items that can be found at home, like straws, paper towel tubes, and rubber bands to build and launch a rocket.

These educational presentations will take place Monday – Friday at 9:30 a.m. EST for younger children, and at 1 p.m. for young adults. There will also be a Q&A portion at the end of each presentation. You can watch the daily presentations here, and download the at-home activities here.

Let us know if you plan to do any activities as a family and which ones you choose in the comments!
