After receiving instruction in propul- sion, orbital mechanics, aerodynamics, celestial navigation, and life support systems, the students will design space furniture and build a space station mock-up. The best design of each will be selected and displayed in the NSTL Visitor's Center. A field trip is planned for week two to the NSTL Visitor's Center, and will feature programs designed especially for each grade level. These programs will be followed up by a tour of the Space Shuttle Test Complex where all of NASA s shuttle flight engines are test fired before being sent to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to be launched.
