Space Habitat @ Southside Christian School

3/27/2018

Spaceport has been helping students build a space habitat that they will eventually live in for 48 hours straight in order to understand the complexities of living in space. The geodesic dome construction has been in the planning stage since December of 2017 and began construction in January 2018. Three sets of crew will occupy the habitat for a 48 hour period and run a multitude of experiments ranging from aeroponics to robotics. THe Jr and Sr. high school students have been assigned roles and are planning and implementing their assignments for weeks as they prepare for the two day stay. Spaceport will update the progress and pictures via Twitter and the website as the project nears the habitation phase.

"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
