The program is a multi day event that gives kids the chance to learn about space through experiments of what it feels like to be in space.
“The skillsets that are needed for this kind of program are English, art, team work, so it really encompasses a wide range of students interests, career goals to all come together for an event like this.” said Executive Director for the Midland Development Corporation, Sara Harris.
The program is a collaboration between the Midland Development Corporation, MISD, Chevron, and Higher Orbits.
