Space EdVentures is the term I use to describe the art and science of teaching through the use of simulators and simulations. There are five Space EdVentures centers in Utah County - Christa McAuliffe Space Center (the mother center) The Space Place (Renaissance Academy, Lehi) Lions Gate (at Lakeview Academy, Saratoga Springs), Telos Discovery Space Center (Telos Academy, Vineyard) and Canyon Grove Academy.
Each Space EdVentures Center has at least one functioning simulator AND each simulator has a Control Room. Most, if not every, control room is also a historical time capsule for its simulator. Within those control rooms are little things that speak of the simulator's history. Little things which record something about the people who spent so much of their lives playing the Great Wizards of Oz behind the curtain.Today, The Troubadour starts a new series focused on the history displayed in Space EdVentures' control rooms. We start with the Phoenix.
