The Micronaut Program at Scobee Education Center provides young children age 4 – 9 with an authentic STEM experience as they travel through a simulated mission to the International Space Station.

By making STEM education a focus of a child’s early education we begin to change the world one class at a time by instilling a lifelong passion to learn about and care for our planet earth. By inspiring and educating young children we contribute to our national goal of a scientifically literate society.
