|Farpoint's 6th Grade Phoenix Squadron|
We are well into the new Long Duration Mission program at the Farpoint Space Education Center located at Renaissance Academy in beautiful Lehi, Utah; minutes away from Thanksgiving Point and Utah's Silicon Slopes. Farpoint is home to the new USS Voyager starship simulator. Farpoint offers local students two after school space clubs: SpaceGuard and Project Voyager.

We already see the results at Renaissance. Student reactions to their first missions and classes are contagiously enthusiastic. Farpoint's sister center at Lakeview Academy in Saratoga Springs also operates an LDM program and has been doing so for three years to overwhelming success. For schools with InfiniD Labs, the Long Duration Mission methodology is the curriculum and philosophy.

Watch one of Farpoint's squadrons as they prepare to undertake their first mission on the USS Voyager. The Lion Squadron's members all come from my sixth grade classes. They're a great group of kids.
