The Space Race on the Space Coast

The National Council for History Education (NCHE) and the Astronauts Memorial Foundation (AMF) at Kennedy Space Center focus on the unique history and culture of Florida’s Space Coast. This project allows K-12 educators of multiple disciplines from around the country to explore the ways in which politics, science, and culture collided in a unique geographical location in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, and where they continue to intersect today.
