Seeking curious children and adults of all ages! Space Foundation Discovery Center is a space and science educational epicenter for visitors and residents of the Pikes Peak region. Through a diverse offering of space-inspired exhibits and immersive programs and events, Discovery Center enables visitors from all walks of life to engage and participate in the wonders of space.
Can you imagine the wonder in a child’s eye when they meet an astronaut? So many children dream of being a space explorer, only to lose sight of that dream. It is our responsibility to inspire young people to see that space offers them many opportunities beyond taking flight. There’s a space for everyone in this world, and the time is now to embrace the possibilities that space offers. Space for you. Space for all.

STEM occupations are expected to grow more than two times faster than all other occupations in the next decade, while only 18% of students are pursuing STEM majors.
“Now that I’m in a position to give back, it’s important to support Space Foundation Discovery Center so they continue to thrive in our community and foster the love of space in kids and inspire them to reach for the stars, like they did for my son.” — Z.
