Join National Space Day!

4th and 5th Grade Teachers: Join classes across the country for an out-of-this-world experience on National Space Day!

This spring, the U.S. space industry and NASA are offering your students a look into the science and technology that will shape their generation’s future – on this planet and beyond. Get your students excited about the incredible wonders and potential of space by joining us for this unique 45-minute broadcast event through YouTube on Friday, May 3 at 1pm ET (10am PT).

Highlights of the experience:

  • Q&A between 4th and 5th grade students and America’s leading experts on space – these adults are taking on the toughest questions kids have about space!
  • Engaging lessons on how rockets launch, why we grow plants in space, why the U.S. is going to Mars, how space technology shapes our everyday lives on Earth, and more!
  • A message and a challenge from astronauts, just for your kids!

After the event, kids can submit a short letter with their thoughts on the future of space for a chance to have it shared with NASA leaders.

In collaboration with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), along with:
