The challenge that my students face is not so great. They must travel 2.5 hours South to enjoy the amazing experience of entering into a space simulator and exploring the outreaches of space. I want to make that adventure much easier for them to obtain by creating a simulator here in the valley.
My students are just as any other group of kids.
Bright kids with high aspirations. I can't be too specific to the children at my school because my hope is that this project will help us in an endeavor to provide an experience for all of the students in the valley.
If you went to a movie theater today it would be greatly disappointing if someone had a pair of computer speakers hooked up in the front and everyone had to listen to the movie though those meager sound producers. Sound adds a lot to the quality of a movie and it is essential for the simulations we are going to run. Please help us get the best equipment possible to make for a more amazing experience for the students who participate.
There is only one place in the world that I have ever heard of that creates the amazing experience found at the space center in Pleasant Grove, Utah.
I want to open up the opportunity for more students to have their dreams fulfilled and the limitations of what they can accomplish blown away as they are part of a team saving the universe while learning all about it.
