NASA plans to have humans on Mars by 2040. That's only 20 years from now and it's never too early (or late) to train to be one of the astronauts who colonizes another planet! We'll be doing basic astronaut training to test our physical and scientific skills, such as Crew Assembly Training and botany in space. NASA scientists will be live streaming with us to teach us the basics of growing plants in space. Astronauts in training will get name badges and freeze dried snacks as a welcome for their journey to Mars!

Parking is located along Oakland Street and in the parking lot next to the Forest Park Middle School.
