3 Prepare for Launch
Before attending the Space Center there are some important steps to making the most of your visit. Please visit our TEACHER RESOURCES PAGE to get started. Underprepared classes miss out on many of the benefits of the program because of lost time and missing content connections. See you soon!

Example: 63 students in two 6th grade classes. Try to think of how you could most evenly split your class. The best option is to have 32 students go to one group and 31 go into the second group. Both take place simultaneously since one group will be in the simulators while the other group experiences the science presentation and Starlab.
