Space Academy Field Trip #3B

Date Change: to Thursday, June 16, from 10-2

At the National Automobile Museum
10 Lake St, Reno, NV 89501

This is our 3rd group from NNHS. Challenger Learning/Auto Museum needed us to move the date from the Friday in May that we had previously booked. Sorry.

A fun-filled learning opportunity put on by the Challenger Learning Center of Northern Nevada. Included is VIP admission to the museum, simulated journeys through space, 360 degree full-dome/full-motion programs, hands-on science workshops, virtual reality headsets, viewing a Mars Rover, and many other exploration possibilities.

We start the day with a screening of "Journey to Space" (narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart) in the Museum theater (about :20 long), and then start into rotations, breaking kids into different groups (14 max) so each group size can fit into the areas we have for each activity (Planetarium dome,  Rocketry, Advanced SpaceFlight Lab, Lunch, Rugged Rovers Workshop in Classroom).

Age: recommendation 3rd grade and up, some flexibility depending on maturity. Ideal for age 8-12.

Cost: Parents must pay on this trip, as well.

$11/person for up to the minimum of 35 registrants, parents and students must all register and pay.

Payment must be completed online within 48 hours of initial registration or risk your spot being given to the next person on the waiting list.

Maximum limited to 70 people. Parents included.

Refunds are not available for cancellations after midnight on May 8. Sorry.

WHAT TO BRING: Bring a packed lunch for everyone in your family. The lunch period is staggered by group. It's 30-40 minutes only, there is no snack bar, and nearby restaurants are few.

Please arrive by 9:45 a.m. and check in with Rachel Coelho. (Thanks, Rachel!)

LATE ARRIVALS make us sad :-( We begin the screening promptly at 10am, so, please don't be tardy.

EARLY DEPARTURES allowed at your convenience. But you won't want to miss the fun. :-)

PARKING – free in parking lot at the rear of the building.
