The one day Spaceport did not hold my sons attention - 13 years old. It was like going to school for a day. The rocket they built was between 2 gruops of 4 or 5 kids, not enough for everyone to participate.

My 12 yr old son had a very good time at Spaceport Indiana! My only suggestion would be that you split the age groups up to be more age appropriate. Because the younger kids needed much more help he got bored a few times while waiting for them to catch up.

The kids didn't think it was worth the Groupon price, though I do see why he had to charge that much to make it worth his while to teach the class. I wasn't disappointed we did this, but I wouldn't recommend it to others, just because it was a bit high for the experience they received. The kids thought it would have been worth it at about twenty dollars.

From Our Editors

Though it's nowhere near Cape Canaveral, Spaceport Indiana opens a portal to the upper atmosphere and suborbital space through educational programs, a launch facility, and various testing facilities. Located at the Columbus Municipal Airport, the center helps private companies and the military test new innovations in low Earth orbit, while also running programs for curious junior astronauts. Summer camps and one-off sessions focus on building rockets and launching high-altitude balloons; scientists also travel to local classrooms for demonstrations. A yearly Space Day further excites exploratory instincts with topics that have included space tourism, interplanetary travel, living outside of Earth, and how much easier it is to bathe a dog when gravity can't help it run away.
