Giving Fifth Graders Access to the Universe (For FREE!)

Wed, Apr 11, 2018 at 1:20PM

Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral is providing FREE admission to students ages 10-11 and/or in the fifth grade from now until December 31st, 2018. To download the coupon, click here!

Each student must present the printed coupon and visit with a full-admission paying adult. Admission is limited to 3 students per paying adult.

This great deal is the second year in a row Kennedy Space Center has offered free admission to fifth graders. “Last year’s Fifth Grade Free offer was so successful that we couldn’t wait to share the news that we are repeating the program,” said Therrin Protze, the chief operating officer of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. “In our continued commitment to promote STEM, we hope to inspire kids in this age group to become the next generation of astronauts, engineers, scientists and launch directors who will make today’s plans a reality. Students will have the opportunity to see and experience NASA’s past, present and bold future – bringing to life what they are learning about in school.”  

The fourth and fifth-grade school curriculums nationwide include space exploration as an area of study. The Kennedy Space Center decided to offer this promotion in order to make more students aware of the kind of immersive activities and experiences they have at the visitor complex.

New in 2018 is the Astronaut Training Experience. This experience is available for an additional fee, but by using simulation technology the people who join are transported to Mars! The experience teaches participants how to live, work, and travel in the unique environment.

There are about 40 launches planned for 2018, so if you decide to take advantage of this fantastic deal be sure to look at their launch schedule to make the most of the experience. Having a front row seat to a launch is something your fifth grader won’t forget!
