Astronaut in space above Earth

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live and work in space? Students will “travel” to the International Space Station (ISS) to see what a day in the life of an astronaut is like aboard this exciting outpost of science and discovery in space. Activities include a spacecraft docking simulation, performing spacewalk tasks and a look at real astronaut food. Participants work directly with OMSI educators in small group settings.

This program takes place in the Kendall Planetarium. Combine this program with a planetarium show during your field trip.

A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registrations. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or register@omsi.edu.
