Space Day Texas 2015
March 3, 9AM - 3PM at the State Capitol

Space Day Texas 2015 is just around the corner and this year's theme is "Dawn of a New Era"

NASA will be landing in Austin on the State Capitol on Tuesday, March 3. Activities will include educational and interactive exhibits, presentations highlighting NASA and aerospace achievements, and a celebration of the future of space exploration

Exhibits open to the public. Educational activities on the Capitol grounds open for pre-registered Kindergarten through 12th grade public, private, and home school students.

Visitors to Space Day Texas 2015 can see exhibits displayed in the Capitol Rotunda of space programs like the International Space Station, the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle and the Commercial Crew Program. Those K-12 teachers and students registered for the lawn activities will experience space related hands-on activities and demonstrations. Additional exhibits will be announced, but a must-see exhibit is NASA's Driven to Explore trailer, a multi-media exhibit immersing visitors in the world-class research and development role of the International Space Station. The Driven to Explore trailer also highlights the future destinations for human exploration, how NASA will use advanced human research to prepare for long-duration space travel, the next-generation of vehicles, surface systems destined for use beyond low Earth orbit, and the robotic missions that will pave the way. The Driven to Explore trailer also has a 4 billion-year-old moon rock that visitors can touch. Register now!
