Space Center Houston is excited to welcome back students for our Stars & STEM Program. To ensure a safe environment for our students and crew members, we ask all participants to review our new policies and procedures before participating.

  • Event capacity: The program capacity is limited to ensure social distancing can be met and sanitizing practices can be implemented.
  • Face coverings: All students, chaperones and staff are required to wear a face covering while at Space Center Houston. The only time face coverings can be removed is when eating or drinking while being stationary. If you arrive without a face covering, one can be purchased onsite.
  • Meals: Dinner will be provided in The Food Lab. All food must be consumed in The Food Lab. Bottled water is allowed throughout the center.
  • Activities: Our activities have been designed to ensure a safe environment for learning.
    • In order to maintain social distancing, activities will be conducted in large open areas of the center.
    • Activity areas will allow for all participants to remain at least 6 feet apart.
    • Participants will sit at opposite ends of a 8-foot table.
    • Supplies will be prepared and placed at the tables before the activities begin.
    • Participants will remain at assigned stations throughout the activity portion.
    • Participants will be assigned a restroom based on their activity location during the evening portion of the program.
  • Second day admission: The program continues to offer a tram tour of NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) in the morning as part of your second day experience. Please be aware that tours may become unavailable at any time due to JSC’s policies and regulations.
    • Second day ticket option 1: Use your second day ticket the day after your evening program. Board the tram, take the tour, return to Space Center Houston, and enjoy your day.
    • Second day ticket option 2: Save your Day 2 ticket. Depart Space Center Houston to use your second day ticket on another date. You will be emailed a link to access your 2nd day timed ticket after your departure.
