The First Voyager Club Meeting!

The first Voyager Club (Alpha Group) meeting was held on Tuesday Oct. 28th. The first meeting was a success. Students planned future club meetings, club leadership, classes, possible simulations, and heard about exciting new technologies coming to the Space Center. All the students left excited for their next meeting on November 20th at 4:30 P.M.

In order to accommodate students schedules we are now offering two opportunities to attend. The Voyager Club's Beta Group will have their first meeting on Thursday November 6th at 7:00 PM and end at 8:30 PM.

The Alpha Club will always meet at 4:30 P.M. for those that have afternoons free. The Beta Club will always meet in the evenings at 7:00 P.M. for those with evenings free. The date of each club meeting will be announced at least 2 weeks in advance.

The Voyager Club is open to students who love attending Space Center camps – classes and want to earn higher Space Center Rank. Club meetings, activities and educational programs will focus on space science, aviation, communication, team building, leadership and science fiction. Other details about the Voyager Club listed below:

  1. There is no charge for attending
  2. Class hours are awarded at the end of each meeting for attendance. Extra class hours are awarded at the end of each term to members that have no grades lower than a C.
  3. The Club meets twice each month. Meeting dates and times are announced two weeks in advance on this blog and through the Frequent Flyer email list.
  4. You are allowed to attend ONCE a month. Lesson topics and objectives will change each month.
  5. Lesson topics and objectives may or may not be announced ahead of time.
  6. You must wear your Space Center T-Shirt to attend. If you don't have a shirt you may purchase one at the Center for $10.00.
  7. You must register for each meeting ahead of time. This is done only by email. If your name is not on the register you may be asked to leave. The lesson is taught in the Space Center's Discovery Room, which can only handle occupancy of 30 max. That is why you must pre-register to attend.
  8. The instructors are Center employees. There may be occasional special speakers.
  9. These meetings are not merit badge classes.
  10. Simulators may be used in class sessions, but not promised and not on a regular basis.
Your best behavior is expected. Students will be asked to leave and not return if their behavior becomes a distraction to the instructor and / or other students around them.
Once again, we are looking for students with an interest in learning and increasing your rank at the Space Center.

If you'd like to attend the Beta Club meeting in November please send an email to the Space Center through the web site's "Contact Us" section. An email 'Ticket' will be emailed back to you.

We look forward to having you in attendance!

Mr. Williamson
