Afternoon Class Program Registration Request 2019-20

 

Applications for afternoon programs through February 14, 2020 are now being accepted.

 


The NYC Center for Aerospace and Applied Mathematics (NYCCAAM) increases students' interest and excitement about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through space and aviation science. Hands-on activities simulate real world experiences where students apply science and math concepts learned in the classroom to work together to solve authentic problems. 


Challenger Learning Center
The Challenger Learning Center engages students in awe-inspiring, simulated space mission adventures that include a realistic Mission Control room and orbiting Spacecraft – designed with guidance from NASA. Students are transformed into astronauts, flight controllers, scientists, and engineers as they work collaboratively to solve problems, make decisions, and share in the thrill of discovery.

NASA Aerospace Education Lab 
Equipped with flight simulators, a wind tunnel, model airplanes, and specialized software, the NASA Aerospace Education Laboratory (AEL) provides students the opportunity to explore how airplanes fly and how weather and other conditions affect flight. AEL experiences are coupled with hands-on activities and aligned with the NYC Science Scope & Sequences.

 

NYCCAAM Planetarium
An inflatable planetarium introduces students to the night sky and the solar system. Planetarium experiences are coupled with hands-on activities and aligned with the NYC Science or Social Studies Scope & Sequences.

 

NYCCAAM programs can be differentiated for most student populations. Our facility is wheelchair accessible. Contact us at SpaceCenter@schools.nyc.gov to discuss your specific program needs.
