The Space Age on the Space Coast
The Space Coast is the starting point for America’s exploration of the universe, but the region also provides visitors with opportunities to investigate the continuing intersections of politics, technology, race, gender, and the environment. Using the Astronauts Memorial Foundation as home base, participants will explore landmarks such as the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Cape Canaveral Lighthouse, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, and multiple exhibitions and experiences at the Kennedy Space Center. We will engage with historians, education specialists, and NASA astronauts and engineers to investigate these sites and examine America’s scientific past through a focus on the human experience.
