The three squadrons (30 students) are composed of students in grades 5 through 8. The first squadron launches aboard the Starship Voyager on Tuesday. The AHS cadets will join the Space Academy's other 14 squadrons.
The Space Academy offers the best space club available to Utah's students. Our cadets fly 9 month long missions aboard the Starship Voyager, attend leadership training workshops taught by Major Vidinha, receive space and astronomy lessons, and now can take a course in public speaking and debate.

Public speaking and debate are skills needed in the real world of school and work. To that end, the Space Academy is offering a formal public speaking and debate class to all 200 cadets and volunteers taught after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays by master educator Camden Robinson in his classroom at Renaissance. Mr. Robinson is the Academy's middle school history teacher. He also directs the Space Academy's InfiniD missions for our 3 - 8th graders.
Recent Christa McAuliffe Space Center Weddings. Congratulations!
Josh and Jordyn Anderson
January 4, 2020 was the big day for long time CMSC volunteer, supervisor, and flight director Josh Anderson. Josh and Jordyn had a beautiful reception in Provo and will make their home in Bountiful. It is good to see happy beginnings like this, especially someone who I had the privilege of working with and seeing grow up into an outstanding person.
January 23, 2020 Jake Hadfield and Lissa Eagar
For six plus years Jake and Lissa have known each other from their work at the Christa McAuliffe Space Center. It is where they met and fell in love; another Space Center family. It never dawn on me that families would be created because of the Space Center when I founded it way back when. I'm sure Jake and Lissa will not be the last. Several more will come over time. Congratulations to two wonderful young people!

"You know those fun old photos you find where the people were young and had no clue that they were with their future spouse. Turns out it is pretty easy to find one when they've been volunteering, scaring crews, dressing as space pirates, calling from Deck 5, and so on for over seven years together.
Congratulations to Jake and Lissa and we wish them all the best on their many continued adventures."
