Day #9 – One Small Step For Man, One Giant Leap For…Meadowridge?

Day #9 – Kennedy Space Centre, Cape Canaveral, Florida

Today was an extremely eventful day, filled with crazy adventures. To start, morning we had a breakfast buffet in the lobby of the hotel, which was mainly consisting of Mickey Mouse waffles. We were rushed out of the hotel, still half asleep and took off to the Kennedy Space Centre. On the way there, we drove across the Trans-Coastal Bridge. From there, we were able to see the Vehicle Assembly Bay, which from afar, seems small, but on the bus tour there, we learned that it was the exact opposite. It is actually the third largest building in the world in terms of internal space! We had many lessons on the history of the different spacecrafts and space missions (both successful and failed). These lessons consisted of interactive videos, games and even a spaceship simulator. Our educational leader, John Currie, gave us many interesting lessons, as he has experienced this same trip 22 times. He has great knowledge about space which made the Kennedy Space Centre much more enjoyable and educational.

After our great day at the Space Centre, we went to the WonderWorks Theme Park, a building like Science World, with a 2 floor arcade. After a little while of playing games, we ate a wonderful pizza dinner while watching a terrific Magic Show. Mr. Currie was volunteered by all the students as a stage hand for the magician which was absolutely hilarious! All in all, the day was a success, and everyone had a wonderful time at the Kennedy Space Centre and WonderWorks.
