A Journey to the Moon through Texas: Texas and the Apollo Program

Description: 

This lesson explores this unique period of growth in the U.S. space program focusing on the role of the Manned Spacecraft Center (now the Johnson Space Center) and the contributions of workers at the Texas site. Using films produced by NASA and staff at the Manned Spacecraft Center, as well as home movies and other promotional films, students will gain a greater understanding of the developments within the space program and the short timeline and rapid progress that was made. This lesson corresponds with TAMI's web exhibit, A Journey to the Moon through Texas.
