During the Storm program, our students will have the opportunity to visit the NASA Space Shuttle launch space and John F. Kennedy Space Shuttle, located on Cape Canaveral, in Merritt Island, Florida.
The Kennedy Space Center visitor complex is one of the places our students will go to and it is home to many museums, two IMAX theaters, and 4 bus tours allowing visitors to get a closer look at several restricted areas. Flex Major School students will have the opportunity to visit the restricted area of the observation tower on the floor of the launch complex 39 and the Apollo-Saturn V Center.
The observation tower provides unobstructed views of both launch sites throughout the Kennedy Space Center. The Apollo-Saturn V Center is a large museum built around its display part, a restored Saturn V launch vehicle, and features other space-related exhibits, including an Apollo capsule.
We can also get to know the theaters, which allow visitors to relive parts of the Apollo program. One simulates the environment inside a launch room in the Apollo era during a launch of an Apollo mission, and the other simulates the landing of Apollo 11.
All this and more to make the 4-week Storm Program the most enriching and unforgettable experience for our students!
