UE 5 students and teachers are bused to iSpace for a day of fun!

iMISSIONs are educational simulations used as dynamic models of workplace activity allowing students to face authentic conditions and problem-solve just as their professional counterparts must. Students apply for their position based on their interests and skills, and perform tasks simulating experiments related to their assigned job. Students are immersed into the role of scientist/astronaut where they must rely on their fellow crew members to ensure the success of the mission. Depending on their position, students may be tasked with operating a robotic arm, conducting experiments in a glove box, facilitating mission timeline activities, recording and transferring data, navigating, and much more!


Cost:  $20 per student (includes transportation)
