Space & Science Field Trips

Field Trips & Classes

The Space Foundation is based in Colorado Springs. It is dedicated to promoting educational activities related to STEAM.

These activities are designed to engage students from PreK through 20. Exploring this fascinating world can be an incredibly rewarding experience.

Our dedicated team of accredited educators delivers these programs directly to students in laboratory, classroom, and after-school settings. We provide Immersive Educational Experiences. This transforms theoretical knowledge into practical skills and understanding. Students get to apply their learning in real-world scenarios.

The Space Foundation Discovery Center offers educational activities in Colorado Springs. These activities take place primarily at our space education center, which is housed within the Discovery Center. Here, students have the chance to learn in unique environments like the El Pomar Space Gallery, the AGI Space Mission Simulation Laboratory, the Lockheed Martin Space Education Center, and the Northrop Grumman Science Center. Each facility offers an unrivaled opportunity for science field trips in Colorado.
