Florida Today reports that this is the ninth annual Space Week at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
The field trip is a full-day adventure aimed at revving up the kids’ interest in space exploration, and encouraging them to study science, math, engineering and technology.
“What we’re trying to do is get the next generation of kids excited about what we’re doing … so they can be our replacements,” said Adrian Laffitte, director of Florida Government Relations with Lockheed Martin and a veteran Atlas rocket launch director.
According to the article's sidebar, "Eighty-five percent of Brevard County kids entering sixth grade have not visited Kennedy Space Center."
That's just sad.
It might help explain all the wild rumors running around Brevard County, e.g. KSC is being turned into a solar farm, a federal prison, sold to China, ad nauseam.
