This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me. Probably the highlight of my trip. The program ran several hours. It felt very in-depth. Everyone working there was very knowledgeable. I really felt like I was an astronaut in training. If you have a chance to go, do it! I’ve definitely been inspired to go to space camp now!
