This bi-seasonal program offers students a hands-on space travel experience in the context of sunny Orlando. Students participate in an immersive experience at the Kennedy Space Center - the launch site for American NASA rockets - where they observe the technology NASA is using to learn more about the planet Mars. Across three days, students also receive a tour of restricted-access areas of the NASA base and intensive STEM robotics challenges!
While in Orlando, students also participate in an educational trip to the world-famous Universal Studios, take in sporting events, visit local schools, and of course have plenty of time for shopping!
After Orlando, students fly across the country for a college-preparatory experience in San Francisco. During visits to top California schools, students participate in team-building activities, embark on campus tours, and sit in on guest speakers discussing the most important aspects of college applications. They will also tour San Francisco’s famous Silicon Valley to see some of the most famous tech companies in action, and do plenty of sightseeing in the golden city!
