Acworth’s Expanding Horizons Program sets its sights on the Kennedy Space Center. Funded by a private benefactor Expanding Horizons uses the local schools to identify students which will be taken on one educational field trip per month throughout the school year. For 16 lucky participants, they will spend 4 days in Cape Canaveral, Florida during the February break participating in the Kennedy Space Center Student Astronaut Training Experience. The training includes space mission simulations and even a ride on multiple space shuttle simulators. The group will be lodging on the popular Cocoa Beach next to Ron Jon Surf Shop. The trip is geared to provide them the immeasurable educational opportunity to visit the nation’s marquee NASA site, increase their knowledge and understanding of aeronautics, and develop memories they have for a life time.
