GTSC is a 2 week program that involves cultural activities including visits to museums, aquariums, and landmarks, mountain hiking, and local tours. High School students earn college level credits transferable to other institutions or schools.
During the space explorations segment of our program participants will be trained on the various aspects of space technology with frequent hands-on demonstrations. They get to build scale model rockets and actually launch them. They experience 1/6th gravity, high G forces, and other simulators like the multi-axis trainer just as actual astronauts do in the course of their training. They are briefed about the importance of the various people in a space mission and their roles and responsibilities.
Students will then spend a total of 4 days exploring Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld amusement parks. Each park offers a variety of unique performances, rides, and educational programs.
