Young Astronauts will meet from 3:00-4:15 pm on the dates listed below.  On meeting days, students must have rides home promptly at 4:15 pm.  If you have any questions and/or concerns, please feel free to contact me at maria.smeltzer@nisd.net.  I am looking forward to having your student in this great program.

This is a tuition based program that is due until you know that you have been selected to participate.  Only a certain number of students can be part of Young Astronauts, a drawing will be held to determine who will be part of this year's Young Astronauts. 

Stargazing was held February 28, 2020

It is a 2 hour event that takes place in the evening. Students rotate for 20 minute activities throughout the night. Such activities may include making a comet, a Star Clock to tell you when stars/planets are out during months/hours, trivia of the curriculum that has been selected for the year, Space Olympics (various objects to be thrown/kicked and jumping - this demonstrates how gravity is affected on the moon or planets - math calculations are involved and last but not least, what everyone looks forward to the opportunity to look through telescopes. These are shared by local astronomy groups.
