Announcing A New Starship Under Construction In the United States Northeast. The Young Astronauts at Central Elementary School. The Imaginarium.

 Announcing A New Starship Under Construction In the United States Northeast.   

     Our good friends at Dream Flight Adventures have eight starship simulators in their fleet.  Six of the eight ships are located in Pennsylvania . The Horizon is in Washington DC. The Artemis Charger is in Venezuela.
     But what is this?  Pictures have leaked out of Dream Flights Offices of a ninth simulator located somewhere in the nation's northeast.  Admiral Starblayze has been tightlipped.  We'll have to wait and see.

   The fleet of Voyager Inspired simulators grows.  It is exciting.  Think how many students worldwide will participate in simulated adventures this upcoming school year.  So many students; so few ships.
We need more.

Boy Does This Bring Back Memories

     Nanette Mortensen was one of my top Young Astronauts back in 1986 at Central Elementary School in Pleasant Grove.  This was four years before I started the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center.   Our club was one of the top five in the nation. We were selected to represent the United States Young Astronaut Council at international space camps and conferences in Japan, Korea, and the old Soviet Union.


     Recently Nanette posted her membership certificate online. I thought I'd share it with all our Troubadours and our new Young Astronauts at Renaissance Academy.  The program is alive and well in Lehi.  Last year 260 students were members of the club. 
     With the start of the 2018-2019 school year in one month, a new year of Young Astronaut and Voyager Club missions and classes will start.  It will be another exciting year.
