"The programs at Spaceport are about so much more than the stars. They provide a teaching environment that is fun, safe and encompasses a host of lessons about scientific balloons, rockets, and all things space. I was pleasantly surprised how complete their programs really are and will continue to involve my students in their programs throughout the school year. I'm confident the knowledge my students gained by participating in their activities will help them excel in future space lessons and programs. Thanks for the wonderful experience!"~~Michelle Nelson, Quest Science, Central Middle School, Columbus Indiana.
The BalloonSat Program was an excellent source for the students to learn about scientific experimenting; as well as, hands-on activities and experiencing a near-space encounter. It was set up well and professionally led so that students were able to understand some difficult terms and concepts. They really enjoyed the launch and being able to track the balloon. I would recommend this program to anyone! ~ Karla Willis, Educator Kennard Elementary
"It was Awesome!" ~Amanda Magee, Carthage Elementary
Spaceport provides an awesome educational opportunity. Our students are engaged and completely immersed in the program when Spaceport has worked with them. They are professional, easy to work with, and work well with elementary age students. I highly recommend Spaceport to all schools who are involved in promoting STEM and project-based learning! ~Kelly McPike, Maconaquah Elementary
I greatly appreciated and enjoyed the time and experience with Spaceport IN. The discussions were informative and entertaining. My students learned a great deal, remained engaged, and were motivated to develop strong lab plans and reports. The entire experience was exciting and new to everyone involved. It truly is a great way to engage students within inquiry, and make connections to many facets of curriculum! ~Candace McMullan Holy Cross School

What jobs would today's middle school students fill in a future workforce? There are plenty. As you might guess, there are a host of new career choices that look nothing like the careers that Generation X had to choose from. The "Digital Generation" as they're known today will have different jobs and will need new curriculum to support them. As we debate school funding and class offerings, consider the list of new jobs that will fill the global economy. Click HERE to view and download the 20 newest science based careers we've identified.
