Are you looking for an unforgettable gift for the kiddos? Our education programs are engaging as well as educational to entertain and inspire your future astronauts.

Space Center U

Space Center University, our ultimate educational experience, is an immersive, multi-day program offered year-round for ages 11+. Participants are inspired as they engineer solutions to space-related challenges, collaborate to find solutions and go behind the scenes at NASA Johnson Space Center and the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory, the world’s largest underwater training facility.

Participants discover areas such as robotics, rocketry, thermal protection systems and space habitats. The program promotes teamwork, problem solving, communication and engineering solutions to space related situations.

Family experiences

At our family overnight experiences, you and your family can spend the night at Space Center Houston to navigate your own space exploration journey. Build rockets, operate robotic rovers and train like an astronaut. Family Campouts occur multiple times per year. Check the webpage for upcoming dates.

Start a new holiday tradition and join us for the first Galaxy Lights Family Overnight Dec. 7. Explore STEM concepts through engaging activities, and experience Houston’s most interactive and technologically advanced light display Galaxy Lights, presented by Reliant.

If you’re looking for a family experience without the overnight element, our Stars & STEM Family Night is perfect for you. This new program allows you and your family to spend an evening working together to complete hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) activities at Space Center Houston. Plus you get a second-day ticket to come back and explore the center during the day.

Explorer Camps

Our seasonal Explorer Camps provide the perfect platform to launch your young explorer onto a path of life-long learning.

With single and multi-day camp options for ages 4-11, Explorer Camps offer something for everyone. Campers explore science, technology and engineering topics through immersive activities. Build rockets, design space habitats, program robots and more!
