NYC Center for Aerospace and Applied Mathematics

What We Offer

The New York City Center for Aerospace and Applied Mathematics (NYCCAAM) gets students excited about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) through space and aviation science. Hands-on activities allow students to use concepts they learn in the classroom to solve real-world problems. Students in grades K through 12 can have simulated space experiences in the Challenger Learning Center or learn how airplanes fly in the NASA Aerospace Education Laboratory. We offer:

  • Single-day class visits for students in grades K-8
  • Week-long camps over spring and summer break
  • Extended in-school and after-school programs in aviation, engineering, and robotics
  • Professional development and resources for educators

Plan Your Visit

If you are coming for a Challenger Space Mission

About a week before your visit, facilitate the Pre-Mission Lesson with your students to introduce them to their jobs as astronauts and get them excited about their visit. A link with lesson materials will be emailed to you when your trip is confirmed.

A few days before your visit, complete the crew manifest, make sure you have satisfied the 1:10 chaperone to student ratio, and have printed out travel directions. Our location is a little tricky so be sure the bus driver has clear directions.

On the day of your visit, bring your crew manifest and an attendance list for each class. If you plan to eat at New York City Center for Aerospace and Applied Mathematics (NYCCAAM), have students bring their lunches; we will store them for you. Please note: Students will not be able to purchase food at the Center. Call when you are on your way, or before boarding the subway. Bring any Pre-Mission Lesson materials that were loaned to you, along with payment if it was not previously submitted (school check or FAMIS). We do not accept cash or credit cards.
