Destination SPACE (Satellite Program for Aerospace-Centered Education), operating through the Asheville Museum of Science (AMOS), is designed to promote and cultivate long term interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) disciplines by providing unique, hands-on, remote sensing educational opportunities for public high school students. Destination SPACE operates three programs: Satellite Week Space Camp, ThinSat Program, and Deep-Space STEM Mission. Satellite Week Space Camp, designed as a week-long residential camp, introduces remote sensing and engineering concepts as participants design and build their own small satellites, launch them on weather balloons, learn about remote sensing applications, and work directly with NASA and NOAA scientists, engineers and data managers. The ThinSat Program runs throughout the school year with a three-phase curriculum increasing in complexity and culminating with student designed ThinSats that launch into an extreme low earth orbit off the second stage of a supply rocket bound for the International Space Station. Students receive an in-depth understanding of satellites and remote sensing and develop their own research projects. Destination SPACE recently expanded into a third program, the Deep-Space Mission, the first ever deep-space STEM curriculum geared towards high school students!
